Defense Secretary Jim Mattis responded Wednesday to an NBC report that President Trump wanted to increase the U.S. nuclear arsenal tenfold.
"Recent reports that the President called for an increase in the U.S. nuclear arsenal are absolutely false," Mattis said without naming NBC. "This kind of erroneous reporting is irresponsible."
President Trump conveyed his annoyance at the report in remarks to reporters after meeting with Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau in D.C.
“It’s frankly disgusting, the way the press is able to write whatever they want to write,” Trump said.
