President Trump doubled down on his attacks on NBC today and made a rather stunning comment about the press.

Earlier today, he lashed out at NBC News for reporting he asked for an increase in the U.S. nuclear arsenal, and even suggested taking punitive action for the story:

He again called the NBC News report “fake news” in the Oval Office today before saying the following:

“It’s frankly disgusting the way the press is able to write whatever they want to write, and people should look into it.”
