Trump warns 'disgusting' press after nuclear policy report

Trump is'all in for modernization of America's nuclear weapons program according to one person in the July meeting some underground missile command consoles still look like something out of a Cold War movie set

Conway delivered her comments shortly after Trump posted tweets criticizing NBC in response to the network's report that he'd asked for a tenfold increase in the US nuclear arsenal this past summer. Trump said he believed the report of Tillerson's insult was "fake news" but nevertheless challenged Tillerson to an IQ test during an interview with Forbes published earlier this week.

Donald Trump said NBC should lose its broadcast license after the network's news division reported on comments he allegedly made about radically expanding the U.S.'s nuclear arsenal during a national security meeting.

The comment was made during a July 20 meeting that included Secretary of State Rex Tillerson and the Joint Chiefs of Staff, according to NBC News. "It was soon after the meeting broke up that officials who remained behind heard Tillerson say that Trump was a "moron". That was just fake news by NBC, which gives a lot of fake news lately", Trump said when asked about the article during a press conference.

Last week, White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders assured reporters, "This is a president who supports the First Amendment". We won't need an increase but I want modernisation and I want total rehabilitation.

The tweet was one in a series from Trump in which he criticized the network for a story it published Wednesday stating he wanted to increase the USA nuclear arsenal by almost tenfold.

The president was reacting to an NBC News report that he pushed senior aides for a major expansion of the USA nuclear arsenal.




"I want to have absolutely, perfectly maintained - which we are in the process of doing - nuclear force", he said.

Trump's threat came shortly after he claimed an NBC news story about his nuclear ambitions is "pure fiction". Comcast, which owns NBC, owns several licenses in major markets such as NY and Los Angeles.

After Trump's remarks to the press, CNN senior media correspondent Brian Stelter reacted by saying that the president is indeed calling the media "disgusting" and the "idea of a free press disgusting".

Still, President Trump responded with fury. Instead, licenses are issued to local stations.

Since November, Conway has blasted at least three news stories on Twitter as "fake news", including a New York Times article about her tendency to publicly discuss Trump's private thinking.
