Trump NBC Attack Follows Criticism Of Time Warner's CNN, Amazon”

Defense Secretary Jim Mattis responded Wednesday to an NBC report that President Trump wanted to increase the USA nuclear arsenal tenfold.

President Donald Trump is renewing his feud with NBC News, and this time he's raising the possibility of challenging broadcasting licensing for broadcast outlets.

During the height of the Cold War, the stockpile of nuclear weapons from Russian Federation and the USA was at its peak due to an ongoing arms race.

An NBC News report about Trump asking for more nuclear weapons - which reportedly is what pushed Secretary of State Rex Tillerson to call Trump a "moron" this summer - instigated Trump's most recent Twitter attacks on the media. The article said after Trump saw the slide he said he wanted a bigger stockpile of weapons, not the bottom position on the downward-sloping curve. Officials briefly explained the legal and practical impediments to a nuclear buildup and how the current military posture is stronger than it was at the height of the build-up. However, after decades of worldwide disarmament treaties (which were signed by every president since Ronald Regan), the stockpile of nuclear weapons has steadily decreased around the world.

On Wednesday afternoon, NBC's Peter Alexander reported that on the matter of the First Amendment, Trump said: "It is frankly disgusting the press is able to write whatever it wants to write".

Trump again called the report "fake news" and added that such an increase in the nuclear arsenal was "totally unnecessary". Trump later tweeted that the story is, "Pure fiction, made up to demean".

Trump had previously feuded with CNN about their coverage of him, at one point tweeting gifs of him at a WWF match punching a wrestler who had a CNN logo superimposed on his face.

The license Trump refers to is that granted by the Federal Communications Commission.
