Earlier today, Trump threatened to shut down one of the nations biggest news outlets. He tweeted that NBC News should have its broadcasting license taken away because of a report the news network reported he asked advisers in July to dramatically expand the U.S. nuclear arsenal. “Fake @NBCNews made up a story that I wanted a ‘tenfold’ increase in our U.S. nuclear arsenal. Pure fiction, made up to demean. NBC = CNN!” He went on to follow that tweet up with “With all of the Fake News coming out of NBC and the Networks, at what point is it appropriate to challenge their License? Bad for country!” During press availability in the Oval office later in the day, he continued on  his Twitter assault. “It is frankly disgusting the press is able to write whatever it wants to write.”
