President Trump Denounces ‘Fake NBC News’ Story as ‘Pure Fiction’

On Wednesday, NBC News released a story alleging President Trump claimed, during a meeting with high-ranking military leaders, that he wanted to add a tenfold increase to the U.S. nuclear arsenal.

In response, the president strongly denounced NBC’s story as “pure fiction,” and questioned whether he should challenge the network’s broadcasting license.

President Trump has had a tense relationship with the pro-Democrat party liberal media, having recently said “the press should speak more honestly.”
