Trump denies seeking almost tenfold increase in U.S. nuclear arsenal

Trump, long obsessed with nuclear weapons, wants 28000 more

Donald Trump shocked the world by beating the odds to become U.S. President.

President Trump continued his assault on the "fake news media" on Wednesday - suggesting it is time to challenge the networks' broadcast licenses.

U.S. Sen. Michael Bennet said Trump was continuing "his effort to undermine the First Amendment and freedom of the press".

"Trump indicated he wanted a bigger stockpile, not the bottom position on that downward-sloping curve", NBC reported.

For example, Damian Lillard - who received 340,593 votes - could've been selected over Kemba Walker (170,299) last season. Coaches will select the reserves - two guards, three front-court players and two players from any position.

Bovada Sportsbook has released a series of politically-themed betting lines that include the commander-in-chief's claim that he would score higher on an IQ test than Secretary of State Rex Tillerson. "It was soon after the meeting broke up that officials who remained behind heard Tillerson say that Trump was a "moron".

"Officials briefly explained the legal and practical impediments to a nuclear buildup and how the current military posture is stronger than it was at the height of the buildup", the network reported, adding that no expansion is planned. However, after decades of global disarmament treaties (which were signed by every president since Ronald Regan), the stockpile of nuclear weapons has steadily decreased around the world. At various points, Trump wondered aloud why nukes would be made if they were never to be used, wouldn't rule out nuking Europe, said that his strategy with regards to nuclear weapons is "to be unpredictable". Less than one in 10 think Trump's comments are making it better. During his speech before the United Nations General Assembly last month, Trump made no distinction between the King Jong-un regime and the North Korea people and said his administration is willing to "totally destroy North Korea".

The license Trump refers to is that granted by the Federal Communications Commission.
