Donald Trump threatens to 'revoke' licenses for broadcasters
Donald Trump's battle with various US Networks continues
President Donald Trump has renewed his feud with NBC News, and even raised the possibility of revoking broadcasting licences for outlets.
Yesterday, Mr Trump wrote on Twitter that with all the "Fake News" coming out of "NBC and the Networks, at what point is it appropriate to challenge their License?".
Overnight he returned to the topic.
Network news has become so partisan, distorted and fake that licenses must be challenged and, if appropriate, revoked. Not fair to public!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) October 12, 2017
The topic was also raised during his meeting us Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.
The Federal Communications Commission oversees the renewal of licences for broadcasters.
Mr Trump has been hitting back against a recent NBC News story that US secretary of state Rex Tillerson considered resigning during the summer and that Mr Tillerson had called Mr Trump a "moron."
