On Wednesday night, President Donald Trump called for the broadcast licenses of all new networks to be challenged and revoked unless they are fairer to him.
The President (for now) Of The United States tweeted:
Network news has become so partisan, distorted and fake that licenses must be challenged and, if appropriate, revoked. Not fair to public!

Trump responded to the backlash that came from his idea that NBC broadcast license revoked by calling for all of the networks to have their broadcast licenses revoked. Essentially what Trump is saying is that he wants to have the power to decide whether a network is fair to him or not, and if he thinks they are unfair, they will be taken off of the air.
Trump wants the news to consist of Fox News and Sinclair Broadcasting. Donald Trump is going totally insane before our eyes. This is not a president blowing off steam or venting. Trump is floating ideas that are violations of our nation’s constitutional principles. Trump is trying to shut down the free press, and if his cabinet wasn’t serious about the 25th Amendment before, they better get serious about it now, because Trump has lost it.
