Ben Sasse Challenges Trump: Are Your 'Recanting' Oath to Uphold the First Amendment?

Source: Mediate



by Ken Meyer | 7:33 am, October 12th, 2017

In light of Donald Trump‘s most recent slams against the press, Nebraska Republican Senator Ben Sasse wants to know if the president is going back on his vow to uphold the First Amendment.




Sasse was referencing the Oath of Office, which involves the president’s promise to “preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States.”

The senator’s remarks came after Trump jabbed at NBC over their Wednesday report on how the president supposedly wants to drastically increase the American nuclear stockpile. The most prominent part of Trump’s slams was the moment he recommended that the government challenge NBC’s broadcasting license, along with other news sources who scrutinize him with their reporting.

Trump topped off his anti-media comments during a conversation with Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, saying its “disgusting the press is able to write whatever it wants to write.”

Trump started his Presidency by lying before God with his hand on the Bible.

5. "Nebraska Republican Senator"

The entirety of the GOP elected officials need to be out there and challenging Drumpf's ass. They need to realize that he doesn't give a shit about them or anything held sacred for this country. He only cares about himself.
