GOP Sen. Ben Sasse Asks Trump If He’s ‘Recanting’ His Oath to Protect the First Amendment


Sen. Ben Sasse (R-NE) has a strong reaction to President Trump‘s recent attacks against NBC News and threats about “revoking their license.”

On Wednesday night, the GOP senator released a statement:

“Mr. President: Words spoken by the President of the United States matter.” Sasse began. “Are you tonight recanting of the oath you took on January 20th to preserve, protect, and defend the First Amendment?”

Sasse received some praise for his statement on Twitter.

And he heard from a few critics as well, including Sean Hannity.
