Trump Called for Tenfold Increase in Nuclear Weapons

Trump, long obsessed with nuclear weapons, wants 28000 more

The NBC report stated that some of Trump's key advisers were also in the room during the Pentagon meeting, including the Joint Chiefs of Staff and Secretary of State Rex Tillerson.

On a morning when President Donald Trump suggested the cancellation of NBC's broadcasting license because of stories he deemed "fake", presidential advisor Kellyanne Conway called for "a full and free press" and said she doesn't use the term "fake news".

Huckabee's comments came hours after Trump tweeted: "Why isn't the Senate Intel Committee looking into the Fake News Networks in OUR country tos ee why so much of our news is just made up-FAKE!" Schatz raised the possibility of the White House interfering with the FCC's affairs and questioned Chairman Pai about any inappropriate contact the FCC may have had with the White House. We won't need an increase but I want modernisation and I want total rehabilitation.

"Right now, we have so many nuclear weapons I want them in ideal condition, flawless shape".

Stelter added that the NBC News story about Trump's nuclear comments had multiple sources, and that making up sources rarely happens in journalism.

Tillerson said during a visit to Beijing two weeks ago that the administration was "probing" for channels of direct communication with Pyongyang to ratchet down tensions, but Trump quickly undercut the nation's top diplomat, saying on Twitter that it was a waste of time.

According to NBC, senior military commanders told the president that the sort of expansion he reportedly asked for would not only be prohibitively expensive but could also break with decades of USA nuclear policy and potentially violate nuclear disarmament treaties.

US President Donald Trump has threatened to challenge the broadcast licences of NBC and other networks in a series of tweets.

Trump denied requesting more weapons. "It's frankly disgusting the way the press is able to write whatever they want to write and someone should look into it".

"I think the movement is towards opinion journalism as opposed to true, pure journalism that tries not to take a side", Rep. Mike Conaway, a Texas Republican, said.
