It's from the 1995 movie The American President and was said by President Andrew Shepard.
I forgot to add that part so thanks for asking. I fixed it.
Never saw it but now I want to watch it.

The supreme court has already ruled that burning the flag is protected speech. Who cares what he thinks?
I'm a lot more interested in his financial position with regard to DAPL, but the national media is consumed with his latest tweets (again).
Misdirection is the art of convincing your mark that they should pay attention to the exact wrong thing, at the exact right time.
Props to PE Trump. He is a master-magician.

Trump can easily put-out a press release. Twitter is not his only way to communicate.
True,but i dont think hes actually going to do anything either. This is just propaganda and publicity stunting.
Although.. if i was trump id appoint judges to overturn or amend those decisions made by previous Supeme courts. Such as the Texas V white case.
Why would he want to paint himself as a fascist twat?

Hey, the flag is the symbol of our nation.
It represents all americans, good and bad.
Burn the flag, burn the nation.
Leave the flag alone!!
"America isn't easy. America is advanced citizenship. You gotta want it bad, 'cause it's gonna put up a fight. It's gonna say "You want free speech? Let's see you acknowledge a man whose words make your blood boil, who's standing center stage and advocating at the top of his lungs that which you would spend a lifetime opposing at the top of yours. You want to claim this land as the land of the free? Then the symbol of your country can't just be a flag; the symbol also has to be one of its citizens exercising his right to burn that flag in protest. Show me that, defend that, celebrate that in your classrooms. Then, you can stand up and sing about the "land of the free".
- President Andrew Shepard The American President (1995)

Overhaul the SCOTUS? Little bit hyperbolic don't you think?
I think it was his usual knee jerk reaction.
