Donald Trump denies asking to increase U.S. nuclear arsenal by tenfold

President Donald Trump on Wednesday lamented the fake news spread by mainstream media outlets and reportedly declared: "It is frankly disgusting the press is able to write whatever it wants to write".

Trump's alleged desire for a larger USA nuclear arsenal is, according to reports, what caused Secretary of State Rex Tillerson to call the president a "moron". 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.

Comcast was down almost 1% to 37.31 in late trading on the stock market today. "Before we can renew a station's license, we must first determine whether, during the preceding license term, the licensee has served the public interest; has not committed any serious violations of the Communications Act or the FCC's rules; and has not committed other violations which, taken together, would constitute a pattern of abuse", the document says.

A White House officials told NBC the nuclear arsenal was not the meeting's primary topic, and Pentagon spokesperson Dana White commented that Defense Secretary James Mattis "has many closed sessions with the president and his cabinet members". The agency grants licenses to broadcast television stations, 28 of which are owned by NBC's parent company NBC Universal. That is usually defined as a felony conviction.

It's up to you how much of a loss that is, though: wireless charging still doesn't have the range to be particularly useful yet. The album was published on Google Photos over the weekend by Isaac Reynolds, a product manager at Google's Camera department.

On Oct. 5, White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said Trump "is an incredible advocate of the First Amendment, but with the First Amendment, with those freedoms also come responsibilities".

The President's denial was buttressed by a statement from his defence chief.

"If I walked down this hallway and asked, I don't think I'd find one media person who voted for Trump, and he got 45% of the national vote", Rep. Dave Brat, a conservative Virginia Republican, told TIME in the Capitol Building on Wednesday. Today, Donald Trump has threatened to do the same to NBC. "Now, the FCC must show that it is loyal to the law, not the president, and make clear that it rejects this kind of interference". Markey also called the president's challenge of a broadcaster's license "inappropriate".
