We all know President Trump is sick and tired of fake news from the mainstream media. But now Secretary of Defense James ‘Mad Dog’ Mattis has come out swinging against false reports.
Mattis just rebuffed NBC on a story about the President requesting an increase in America’s nuclear weapons.
The left is trying to make it seem as if Trump wants to go to war. But this report is far from true.
Mattis, whom you rarely ever hear from but who carries a huge “boom” when he speaks, basically just called NBC liars. According to the Daily Caller, here is what Mattis said in a statement: “Recent reports that the President called for an increase in the U.S. nuclear arsenal are absolutely false. This kind of erroneous reporting is irresponsible.”
Trump also weighed in on Twitter:
Fake @NBCNews made up a story that I wanted a "tenfold" increase in our U.S. nuclear arsenal. Pure fiction, made up to demean. NBC = CNN!

Secretary of State Rex Tillerson had to call out NBC last week for lying about his calling Trump a “moron” and now this?
Trump associated NBC with CNN and that’s not a good place to be. NBC is just getting over passing on the story of Harvey Weinstein’s perverted behavior when they had it in their breadbasket. It’s looking really bad for the network. How many more mistakes can they afford?
Plus, passing off a fake story like this will only infuriate an enemy like North Korea. It’s dangerous and false reporting, not to mention a security risk.
NBC once again has shown America it can’t be trusted. That’s why General Mattis stepped in and put them down like a sick dog. This kind of false reporting is bad for the country, plain and simple.
