President-elect Donald Trump continues making news for his tweets.

Tuesday morning, he tweeted: “Nobody should be allowed to burn the American flag – if they do, there must be consequences – perhaps loss of citizenship or year in jail!”

In a series of tweets and retweets Monday night, he criticized CNN: “@CNN is so embarrassed by their total (100%) support of Hillary Clinton, and yet her loss in a landslide, that they don’t know what to do.”

And Sunday, without providing evidence, he tweeted that he would have won the popular vote “if you deduct the millions of people who voted illegally.” He’s faced criticism from Republicans and Democrats for the claim.
