Donald Trump denies seeking almost tenfold increase in U.S. nuclear arsenal

Trump is'all in for modernization of America's nuclear weapons program according to one person in the July meeting some underground missile command consoles still look like something out of a Cold War movie set

President Donald Trump is renewing his feud with NBC News, and this time he's raising the possibility of challenging broadcasting licensing for broadcast outlets.

Huckabee's comments came hours after Trump tweeted: "Why isn't the Senate Intel Committee looking into the Fake News Networks in OUR country tos ee why so much of our news is just made up-FAKE!" "Bad for country!" he tweeted.

Conway delivered her comments shortly after Trump posted tweets criticizing NBC in response to the network's report that he'd asked for a tenfold increase in the USA nuclear arsenal this past summer.

He called the report "pure fiction" that was "made up to demean".

The President's denial was buttressed by a statement from his defence chief.

The story was revealed as the Trump administration is standing off against North Korea's nuclear ambitions and Iran, over the 2015 nuclear deal, the report said.

"Trump indicated he wanted a bigger stockpile, not the bottom position on that downward-sloping curve", NBC News reported, adding that those present were surprised by the request.

"I think it's fake news", Trump told Forbes.

In the latest poll, about 79 percent said they would not support a commissioner for re-election should they support the tax. As for how she misread pop tax opposition so badly, she said, "We're in a very hard time in this country politically".

In the past week, Trump has called The New York Times "failing", said ESPN's ratings have "tanked" and posted a video that began with: "What the fake news media will not show you in Puerto Rico".

"This kind of erroneous reporting is irresponsible", Mattis said in a written statement.

"The founders of our nation set as a cornerstone of our democracy the First Amendment, forever enshrining and protecting freedom of the press", Gordon Smith, the CEO of the National Association of Broadcasters and a former Republican senator, told The Hill. After viewing the chart, Trump reportedly asked to grow the arsenal to 32,000, the number it reached at its peak in the 1960s.

Though it isn't logistically feasible to increase the USA nuclear arsenal in the dramatic manner Trump reportedly desires, his interest follows a troubling pattern.

Speaking to reporters at the White House during a meeting with Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, Trump said the report was not true. During a speech at the United Nations last month, Trump said the United States was prepared to "totally destroy" the North if necessary, and he derisively referred to dictator Kim Jong Un as the "rocket man".

As a businessman and candidate, Trump frequently threatened to sue news organizations over unflattering coverage.

Indeed, Trump's threat seems rather hard to carry out given the Federal Communications Commission does not directly license networks.
