But there’s actually nothing that the betrothed President can actually do about NBC’s license to broadcast stateside. FCC heads took to social media to to note that “That’s not how this works” in response to amped up threats against the network amid its negatively amplified coverage of Trump ‘s time in office.
“Fake news” has been a repeated statement by Trump this week, further, citing that networks should “have their licenses either revoked or challenged for the “fake news” that they produce”. Although alike the FCC noted, uh, the President has no power to determine which or whose license gets challenged or revoked.
Meanwhile, some are beginning to question if Trump is slowly turning on the very same oaths of office he promised when he became President. Specifically, the First Amendment. It’s worth noting that Trump only wants to challenge the licenses of those in which are critical of his Presidency.
