GOP Senator Asks Trump If He’s ‘Recanting’ Constitutional Oath (141 hits)

GOP Senator Asks Trump If He’s ‘Recanting’ Constitutional Oath
By Joshua Roberts REUTERS

Nebraska Sen. Ben Sasse issued a statement asking President Trump is he is “recanting” the oath he took to defend and uphold the Constitution after Trump suggesting revoking the “licenses” of network news organizations.

“Mr. President: Words spoken by the President of the United States matter,” the Republican senator wrote in a statement. “Are you tonight recanting of the oath you took on Jan. 20 to preserve, protect, and defend the 1st Amendment?”

Sasse’s tweet came after Trump sparked backlash from both conservatives and liberals by saying he should censor certain news outlets.

“Network news has become so partisan, distorted and fake that licenses must be challenged and, if appropriate, revoked. Not fair to public!” Trump wrote.
