President Trump Attack NBC News Over Nuclear Report

That evening, he returned to the subject in another tweet: "Network news has become so partisan, distorted and fake that licenses must be challenged and, if appropriate, revoked".

"Oh my god! The Fake News is coming from inside his head!"

Trump's comment was "not only unsafe to the American people's right to access responsible journalism, it represents a clear misunderstanding on his part of how much control the federal government can exercise as it relates to networks and cable channels", Dan Shelley, the executive director of the Radio Television Digital News Association, said in a statement. Rubio asks Army to kick out West Point grad Rubio asks Army to kick out West Point grad with pro-communist posts Trump, honor Obama's agreement to release Guantanamo detainee MORE in a statement hit back at the NBC report, saying Trump never "called for" an increase in the nuclear arsenal.

But on Friday, Trump retweeted former Fox News host Bill O'Reilly, who pointed out that "The President will not be able to impact licenses" of news companies.




During an interview, the President also said that he would have to compare IQ scores with Mr Tillerson if his secretary had actually made the remarks.

Democratic Senator Ed Markey wrote to Federal Communications Commission chairman Ajit Pai on Wednesday, urging him to resist requests from the President to revoke licences because of coverage.

The Radio-Television Digital News Association's Voice of the First Amendment Task Force has condemned the threats and the tweet they rode in on.

The FCC oversees licensing - it licenses individual broadcast stations, not networks specifically.
