Donald Trump Challenges the Freedom of The Press In New Tweet
Donald Trump has been bashing NBC for a while, calling them fake news (as he does nearly all outlets that don’t report nice things about him).
In his latest tweet, he seems to be dishonoring the fundamental right the United States has in society with checks and balances: the press.
With all of the Fake News coming out of NBC and the Networks, at what point is it appropriate to challenge their License? Bad for country!

“With all of the Fake News coming out of NBC and the Networks, at what point is it appropriate to challenge their License? Bad for country!” Donald tweeted.
Obviously we don’t need to explain how this is wrong on all counts — besides the fact that it’s the press’s job to act as a monitor for truth. Seeing as the president’s main job is to uphold the constitution, isn’t it interesting to watch him go against basically everything it stands for?
