Trump appears to admit he can't do much about 'fake news'

Trump was angered that NBC News reported that in a July meeting he had inquired about increasing the nation's nuclear arsenal tenfold. News later followed up with a report that Tillerson called Trump a "moron" following a meeting at which Trump said he wanted to significantly build up the USA nuclear arsenal. "Pure fiction, made up to demean".

The request was what reportedly led Secretary of State Rex Tillerson to call Trump a "moron". Either force him out of office, or wait till we get enough evidence and go ahead with impeachment proceedings, because this behavior that he is exhibiting here, threatening media outlets, pretending that he's some sort of authoritarian dictator, this is not acceptable in the United States and something has to be done to remove this man from power.

But on Friday, Trump retweeted former Fox News host Bill O'Reilly, who pointed out that "The President will not be able to impact licenses" of news companies.

No tweets or statements were issued by FCC Chairman Ajit Pai, a Trump appointee.

In previous court pleadings, she said that Bredow had consented to getting the shots, meaning her refusal to do so constituted contempt.

"It is inappropriate for the President to propose challenging broadcasters' licences because he disagrees with their coverage", that letter read. "Obviously, when a public official, much less the president, threatens media outlets with any kind of legal proceedings, it is a cause for grave concern as a First Amendment matter", Georgetown University media law expert Andrew Schwartzman tells the Washington Post, adding that Trump "is ignorant over details like what the law actually requires or permits".

It is an independent agency in the federal government.

Trump himself has attacked the network over the report on Twitter.

Responding to Mr Trump's musing about revoking licenses for broadcast networks critical of him, former USA federal prosecutor and frequent Trump critic Preet Bharara called the President childish. "Please report for duty".
