Trump Threatens to Challenge FCC ‘License’ of ‘Fake News’ NBC: ‘Bad for Country!’

President Trump is on Twitter again, and he clearly took notice of what NBC News has been talking about today.

The network put out a report on Wednesday which said official sources told them that Rex Tillerson was caught by surprise after Trump asked about a major expansion to the country’s nuclear arsenal during a national security meeting months ago. This was the meeting that reportedly caused the secretary of state to call Trump a “moron.”

The recent reports seem to have gotten under Trump’s skin, seeing as the president brought up the story in a recent interview where he talked about competing against Tillerson in an IQ test. Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders dismissed this yesterday by saying Trump’s remarks at the time were a joke.

Trump might say the latest news is “fake,” but if MSNBC’s Stephanie Ruhle is any indication, the network is prepared to defend their reporting once again:
