President Trump on Wednesday forcefully denied a new report that he asked to dramatically expand the U.S. nuclear arsenal.
“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!” he tweeted.
The news network on Wednesday reported the president’s request, which it said shocked top military brass and senior administration officials.
The request was what reportedly led Secretary of State Rex Tillerson to call Trump a “moron.”
