"Are you tonight recanting of the oath you took on January 20 to preserve, protect, and defend the 1st Amendment?"

Earlier in the day, he launched a similar attack on NBC News.

Sitting next to Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau in the Oval Office on Wednesday, Trump told reporters, "It's frankly disgusting the way the press is able to write whatever they want to write".

The President's tweets are apparently in response to reports from NBC that Trump's Secretary of State Rex Tillerson wanted to resign from his post this summer and called Trump a "moron". "The press should speak more honestly".

A Republican senator is questioning whether President Donald Trump is committed to defending the Constitution after the President suggested that news outlets' broadcasting licenses should be "challenged".

This isn't the first time Sasse has spoken out against Trump. "This isn't normal and it's beneath the dignity of your office".
