Ben Sasse challenges Trump on protecting First Amendment

Following President Trump's apparent threat of the freedom of the press, Sen. Ben Sasse asked if the president was "recanting" his oath to protect the First Amendment.

"Mr. President: Words spoken by the president of the United States matter," the Nebraska Republican said in a Wednesday night statement. "Are you tonight recanting the oath you took on Jan. 20 to preserve, protect and defend the First Amendment?"

Sasse's response came after Trump, angry over a report that he had called for an increase in the U.C. nuclear arsenal, seemed to challenge the freedom of the press.

"It’s frankly disgusting the press is able to write whatever they want," he said.

And while the president wondered whether networks' licenses should be challenged and revoked, he said he wasn't asking for the restrictions on the press.
