Police say it was two teenagers who burned a local man's Trump 2020 flag in Burlington last month.

Gus Klein found the burned Trump 2020 flag on his porch. The story drew a response from the president's son, Eric Trump, who promised on Twitter to send the military veteran a replacement.

Investigators say the 14-year-old and 15-year-old who burned the flag did not set it on fire on or near Klein's house.

Police did not name the suspects because they are underage, but say their parents were a helpful part of the investigation.

The juveniles are being sent to an alternative justice program.
