Trump Accuses NBC of 'Purposely' Misquoting His Nuclear Weapons Comments (Except They Didnt)

Trump Accuses NBC of ĎPurposelyí Misquoting His Nuclear Weapons Comments (Except They Didnít)

The holiday season might be the time of peace on Earth, good will towards men, and all of that other fuzzy stuff, but thatís not stopping President-Elect Donald Trump from swiping at the media again.

On Saturday, Trump claimed that NBC intentionally misquoted him over his recent comments about expanding Americaís nuclear weapons capacity:

Donald J. Trump ✔
@realDonaldTrump

.@NBCNews purposely left out this part of my nuclear qoute: "until such time as the world comes to its senses regarding nukes." Dishonest!

Hereís the original tweet for context:


Donald J. Trump ✔
@realDonaldTrump

The United States must greatly strengthen and expand its nuclear capability until such time as the world comes to its senses regarding nukes

It is unclear whether Trumpís anger was directed towards an online article or a segment on TV. Nonetheless, it is worth noting that NBC has an article containing Trumpís quote in full, and Politico noted that the network reported on the same complete quote at multiple points in their recent TV broadcasts.

2. Does He Have Small Arms As Well As Small Hands?....

Maybe that's why he wants to start an 'arms race'.

5. He reminds me of Tony Montana.

"I always tell the truth even when I lie."
