US Prez Trump breathes fire at news networks
US President Donald Trump has threatened to take major American news networks off the air over a story about his nuclear policy, accusing them of indulging in “fake news”.
Trump and his aides have repeatedly used the term “fake news” to cast doubt on critical media reports, often without providing evidence that the reports were untrue.
Trump was upset after NBC News reported he wants a ten-fold increase in the nuclear arsenal. “With all of the fake news coming out of NBC and the networks, at what point is it appropriate to challenge license?” he said.—
