Tillerson 'Moron' Comment Followed Trump's Call for Massive Nuclear Buildup: Report

Trump, long obsessed with nuclear weapons, wants 28000 more

As it turns out, Trump's comment on NBC was one more inaccurate tweet.

The pair of tweets came just before the president was scheduled to receive his daily intelligence briefing, according to a calendar the White House send reporters overnight.

"In suggesting that a broadcast network's license be targeted because of its coverage, Mr. Trump once again evoked the Watergate era when President Richard M. Nixon told advisers to make it hard for The Washington Post to renew the FCC license for a Florida television station it owned", The New York Times said in its report on the tweet.

"Recent reports that the president called for an increase in the United States nuclear arsenal are absolutely false", Pentagon chief Jim Mattis said in a statement.

"I think we need a full and free press in our nation, of course", she added, responding to a question about whether President Trump's Twitter tantrums have been dividing the country.

"I'm a person in the West Wing who's never actually uttered the words 'fake news, ' 'enemy of the people, ' 'opposition party.' I don't speak that way, '" Conway said during a talk at Fortune's Most Powerful Women summit in Washington, D.C.

Shah noted that now there are many ways that people save tweets such as bookmarking it with a heart and even retweeting it. Twitter's move to add bookmarking to its service comes just weeks after the company began to test longer tweets .


U.S. Defense Secretary Jim Mattis on Wednesday slammed what he said were "absolutely false" media reports asserting that President Donald Trump had called for an increase in the U.S. nuclear arsenal.

The comment was made during a July 20 meeting that included Secretary of State Rex Tillerson and the Joint Chiefs of Staff, according to NBC News.

The president was reacting to an NBC News report that he pushed senior aides for a major expansion of the US nuclear arsenal. "There hasn't been a military mission that's required a nuclear weapon in 71 years". "It's frankly disgusting the way the press is able to write whatever they want to write and someone should look into it". "That's the only thing I have discussed", Trump said.

The tweet threatening to revoke NBC's broadcast license is the latest in an ongoing war Trump has had with the press.

President Donald Trump on Wednesday dismissed a report that said he wants to increase the country's nuclear stockpile by a factor of ten, accusing the press of making it up entirely. "But if he did that, I guess we'll have to compare IQ tests". Today, Donald Trump has threatened to do the same to NBC.
