NBC News ran a story claiming Trump wanted a tenfold increase in America’s nuclear weapons.
Trump immediately called it fake news.
While NBC doubled-down on their story, “Mad Dog” Mattis just destroyed it and another fake news story with this one statement.
Remember when NBC claimed that Secretary of State Rex Tillerson called Trump a “moron”?
“That never happened,” Mattis said.
Regarding the fake news about Trump’s call for an increase in nuclear weapons, Mattis had even more to say.
The Washington Examiner reports:
Mattis said he at first thought his staff was playing a joke when he read the NBC News report Wednesday that Trump had called for the massive increase during a tense Pentagon meeting in July.
“There was no discussion with that tone or that content that I recall in the Pentagon or at any other time,” Mattis told reporters during an impromptu visit to the Pentagon press area. “I will even remove that I recall. I think I would recall a conversation about doubling or ten times the nukes, Okay. I’ve never had that discussion.”
The secretary said such a suggestion by Trump would have required him to follow up. He released a short statement earlier this week denying the report, which said the president pointed to a chart of current nuclear weapons and indicated the level of increase he wanted.
“If I had gotten word like that I surely would have asked for a meeting to go back over and say whether or not I thought it was good idea,” Mattis said.
There you have it.
The fake news media has been determined to spread lies and misinformation about the president to stoke anti-Trump hysteria both at home and abroad.
Thankfully government officials like Mattis are willing to call out the media when they do so.
Mattis just crushed NBC’s fake news stories. Now it’s up to us to get the truth out.
