GOP Senator: Is Trump 'Recanting' His Oath Of Office?

"Are you tonight recanting the oath you took on January 20th to preserve, protect, and defend the First Amendment?".

The White House and Defense Secretary Jim Mattis denied the report.

Trump tweeted in response: "Fake @NBCNews made up a story that I wanted a "tenfold" increase in our USA nuclear arsenal".

But Sasse isn't the only Republican lawmaker pushing back on the president's attacks on the media. After threatening to take NBC News off the air, Republican Senator Ben Sasse questioned whether the president is breaking his oath of office. The FCC plays a very crucial role in protecting the First Amendment rights to a "free press" that is able to publish and broadcast news stories without repercussions from the government, law enforcement agencies or anybody else. On June 29, the Nebraska senator chided the president after he described MSNBC's Mika Brzezinski in graphic terms in a tweet, according to CNN. "Just useless", Hannity said in a tweet on Wednesday. Federal Communications Commmisioner quoted Trump's threat and read simply "not how it works" with a link to the FCC's regulations manual. "Hope my FCC colleagues can all be on the same page with respect to 1st Amendment".

Added CPJ's North America program coordinator Alexandra Ellerbeck: "Heavily censored countries such as Azerbaijan, Russia, Saudi Arabia and Turkey license news outlets according to whether their leaders agree with their coverage".

Trump spoke to Sean Hannity in a wide-ranging interview on Fox News Wednesday night and again attacked the media - but praised Hannity.

When later asked whether he wanted to place limits on the press, Trump said, "No". "They are really dishonest people". I am a ratings person.
