FULL TITLE: ‘Frankly disgusting’: Trump lashes out at press, threatens NBC over news report he calls ‘pure fiction’

President Trump on Wednesday threatened NBC over a news report he called “pure fiction,” and he lashed out at the news media, declaring that it is “frankly disgusting the press is able to write whatever it wants to write.”

“People should look into it…. The press should speak more honestly,” Trump said during an Oval Office meeting with Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau. “I’ve seen tremendously dishonest press. It’s not even a question of distortion.”

The president was reacting to a report that he pushed senior aides for a major expansion of the U.S. nuclear arsenal. Earlier in the day, Trump on Twitter dismissed that report as “pure fiction” and raised the possibility that he would support stripping the broadcast licenses of news networks that report what he believes to be inaccurate information.

“I know the capability that we have; believe me, and it is awesome, it is massive, and when they make up stories like that that’s just made up,” Trump said in the Oval. “They have their sources that don’t exist; in my opinion they don’t exist. They make up the sources.”
