Washington [U.S.A], October 11 (ANI): President Donald Trump on Wednesday suggested pulling NBC's network's broadcasting license after its explosive news report, stating that Trump had sought a massive increase of 'tenfold' in the nation's nuclear arsenal.

In a tweet, Trump mentioned, "With all of the Fake News coming out of NBC and the Networks, at what point is it appropriate to challenge their License? Bad for country!"

However, Trump dismissed NBC's report and expressed that it is "pure fiction" and is made up to "demean" him.
