GOP senator slams Trump for threats against press

Nati Harnik  AP

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

On Oct. 11, Trump took to social media to deny an NBC News report stating that he had suggested increasing the USA nuclear arsenal by nearly tenfold during a meeting at the Pentagon, according to Politico.

FCC chairman Ajit Pai has not publicly commented on Trump's tweet but recently stated that his independent agency would not revoke the licenses of any networks because of partisan complaints, Bloomberg reports.

In a brief but pointed statement, Sasse made direct reference to the wording of the President's oath of office.

Trump's threats to curtail those rights sounded despotic to Brian Klass, an expert in democracy and authoritarian regimes at the London School of Economics.

Financial & Investment Management Group Ltd holds 0.44% of its portfolio in Royce Global Value Trust, Inc. for 125,327 shares. BidaskClub upgraded Pretium Resources from a sell rating to a hold rating in a report on Wednesday, August 23rd.

This isn't the first time Sasse has spoken out against Trump.

The tweet did not elicit a response from the president. Rosenworcel then requested that all her "colleagues" at the FCC "be on the same page concerning (the) #First Amendment", according to ABC News on Thursday.

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".

Back in 2013, Trump used Twitter to commend the late, disgraced Fox News executive Roger Ailes for supporting Fox employees "against the Obama administration's intimidation of its reporters".

During the interview with Hannity Trump lit into the press. "They are really dishonest people. The press should speak more honestly". "I'm very proud of you". What you are doing to your competition is incredible.
