Trump: ‘Disgusting’ That Press Is Able To Write Whatever It Wants (Video)
Trump continues his attack on press freedom.
President Trump on Wednesday took another shot at the freedom of the press, calling it “disgusting.”
Trump said that it is “disgusting the press is able to write whatever it wants to write” during remarks from the Oval Office.
Trump was being asked about an NBC report that he had sought to increase the U.S. nuclear arsenal by a factor of 10.
With Canadian Prime Mininister Justin Trudeu sitting by his side Trump said, “It is frankly disgusting the press is able to write whatever it wants to write.”
Someone should tell him that the press writing “whatever it wants” is literally the first thing protected by our Constitution. The president should probably know that.
