Sen. Ben Sasse, R-NE, is questioning whether President Trump is committed to defending the first amendment after he suggested licenses for new outlets should be “challenged.”
Sasse tweeted a statement asking if the President was “recanting his oath” of office.
“Mr. President: Words spoken by the President of the United States matter. Are you tonight recanting of the oath you took on January 20th to preserve, protect and defend the First Amendment?”
