President Trump has been picking fights with the “fake news media” for months now, but he doubled down on his attacks earlier this week when he threatened to “challenge” NBC’s broadcasting license.
Outraged over a story that said he wants to increase the United States’ nuclear arsenal tenfold, Trump tweeted on Wednesday:
‘With all of the Fake News coming out of NBC and the Networks, at what point is it appropriate to challenge their License? Bad for country!’
Trump continued his attack on NBC on Thursday evening when he suggested that the network might be “worse than even CNN.”
He announced to his followers:
‘People are just now starting to find out how dishonest and disgusting (Fake News) @NBCNews is. Viewers beware. May be worse than even @CNN!’
It didn’t take long for people to start responding to Trump’s tweet. A number of his followers criticized him for picking fights with news networks while there are so many other things that require his attention, and plenty of others expressed concerns about his mental stability.
