Trump’s Recent Tweets Against Media Suggest He Wants To Violate First Amendment

Even though President Trump issued an executive order on Thursday that dismantles key portions of Obamacare by giving some employers the opportunity to cross state boundaries when providing coverage, his main focus over the past 48 hours on Twitter hasn’t revolved much around healthcare and instead was primarily devoted towards attacking the media, a familiar theme of his presidency.

The focus of President Trump’s Twitter attacks has centered around a NBC story published on October 11th that claimed President Trump wanted a tenfold increase in the nuclear arsenal, a request that surprised his advisers, including Secretary of State Rex Tillerson.

Before reporters in the Oval Office, President Trump denied the NBC story and later criticized NBC on Twitter.

“Fake @NBCNews made up a story that I wanted a “tenfold” increase in our U.S. nuclear arsenal. Pure fiction, made up to demean. NBC = CNN!” Trump tweeted.

His criticism of NBC continued over the next 2 days on Twitter and didn’t just end with his attack against NBC.

He also tweeted a controversial tweet on Wednesday, suggesting he wants to violate First Amendment rights with freedom of speech and freedom of the press when he tweeted a message about challenging and revoking network media licenses.

“Network news has become so partisan, distorted and fake that licenses must be challenged and, if appropriate, revoked” Trump tweeted.

In another tweet, President Trump tweeted, “The Fake News Is going all out in order to demean and denigrate! Such hatred!”

Trump called NBC News “dishonest, disgusting, and fake news” in this tweet:

“People are just now starting to find out how dishonest and disgusting (FakeNews) @NBCNews is. Viewers beware. May be worse than even @CNN!”

Nebraska Republican Senator Ben Sasse released a statement on October 12th asking President Trump if he was recanting of the oath he took on January 20th to preserve, protect, and defend the First Amendment.
