If Trump is right, we might as well burn our flags

If Trump is right, we might as well burn our flags
Maybe Trump is right, maybe the people who fought and died for this country are suckers and losers. After all, they apparently fought and died so that a bunch of criminals and traitors could run this country into the ground.
