Trump Threatens To Revoke NBC’s License Over “Fake News” Report He Wanted 10X More Nuclear Weapons

The Hill reports:

President Trump on Wednesday forcefully denied a new report that he asked to dramatically expand the U.S. nuclear arsenal. The news network on Wednesday reported the president’s request, which it said shocked top military brass and senior administration officials. The request was what reportedly led Secretary of State Rex Tillerson to call Trump a “moron.” At a July meeting at the Pentagon, the president said he wanted to expand the country’s nuclear capabilities after seeing data showing the U.S. weapons stockpile decreasing over the past 50 years, according to the report.
