Trump wants to challenge NBC's broadcasting license


President Donald Trump said Wednesday the licenses for NBC and other broadcast news networks should be challenged after NBC News reported that the president wanted to increase the U.S. nuclear arsenal.

"Network news has become so partisan, distorted and fake that licenses must be challenged and, if appropriate, revoked. Not fair to public!" Trump tweeted on Oct. 11.

NBC News also reported that Secretary of State Rex Tillerson called Trump a “moron” and was considering resigning. Tillerson held a news conference to deny that he considered resigning, but did not answer questions about whether he called the president a “moron.”

The president deemed both stories “fake news” and tweeted several times about the network over the past few days.
