A GOP senator slammed President Trump on Wednesday night time for his repeated threats to revoke the licenses of tv networks over unfavourable protection.
Nebraska Sen. Ben Sasse questioned whether or not Trump was upholding his presidential oath to guard the structure by making the threats on the media.
“Mr. President: Phrases spoken by the President of the USA matter,” Sasse stated in a press release.
“Are you tonight recanting of the oath you took on January twentieth to protect , shield, and defend the First Modification?”
The assertion prompted response from former presidential candidate Jeb Bush who retweeted the remarks in a present of help.
Trump had tweeted earlier on Wednesday night time “Community information has grow to be so partisan, distorted and faux that licenses have to be challenged and, if applicable, revoked.”
His missive got here after he vehemently denied an NBC Information report that he requested to dramatically broaden the US nuclear arsenal.
