GOP senator to Trump: Are you 'recanting of the' Oath of Office?

On Wednesday, Trump began threatening to revoke licenses of TV stations for coverage of him that he considers critical.

"Mr. President: Words spoken by the President of the United States matter", the Republican senator wrote in a statement.

He continued, "Are you tonight recanting of the oath you took on January 20th to preserve, protect, and defend the First Amendment?".

Trump had tweeted earlier on Wednesday night "Network news has become so partisan, distorted and fake that licenses must be challenged and, if appropriate, revoked". "Not fair to public!"

"It's frankly disgusting the way the press is able to write whatever they want to write", Trump said at a White House photo op.

While attacking the media isn't new for Trump, his latest threat of using the power of the federal government to go after media companies represents a dramatic escalation in his ongoing war against the press.
