Trump brings NBC's 'license' into question after nuclear arsenal report

Last week, Trump similarly blasted NBC News as "fake" after it reported that Tillerson called Trump a "moron".

"Trump is continually tweeting, and I know what he's doing and I understand why he's doing it, and his motives are pure".

"Recent reports that the President called for an increase in the US nuclear arsenal are absolutely false", Mattis said without naming NBC.

The MOST protected form of speech under by US Constitution is political speech.

The tweets were then posted on Wednesday morning. She said that "major measures" he's helped put into law-legislation that serves veterans and protects whistleblowers, for instance-don't get the media attention they deserve.

According to the officials present, Trump's advisers, among them the Joint Chiefs of Staff and Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, were surprised.

The July 20 meeting came a day after another one that left national security officials stunned.

"The July 20 meeting was described as a lengthy and sometimes tense review of worldwide US forces and operations", NBC reported. The State Department last week denied that Tillerson called Trump a moron, although the secretary declined to deny the report himself. Stelter added that the NBC News story about Trump's nuclear comments had multiple sources, and that making up sources rarely happens in journalism.

"In suggesting that a broadcast network's license be targeted because of its coverage, Mr. Trump once again evoked the Watergate era when President Richard M. Nixon told advisers to make it hard for The Washington Post to renew the FCC license for a Florida television station it owned", The New York Times said in its report on the tweet.

He followed up nearly immediately with his veiled threat to strip NBC of their licence.

The US Constitution is understood to guarantee press freedom, but television networks rely on access to broadcast frequencies granted by government agencies.

The FCC does not license the TV or radio networks, but rather individual broadcast stations, according to its online policy manual. Officials told Trump that there are legal and practical reasons why the nations' nuclear weapons stockpile could not be increased, NBC sources said, later telling the network's reporting team that no expansion is planned.

"The insanity and folly of this of course can not be overstated", the director for Disarmament and Threat Reduction Policy at the Arms Control Association, Kingston Reif, tweeted in response to the NBC report.
