During a meeting with Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau Wednesday, President Trump denied an NBC News report Wednesday claiming he asked to increase the U.S. nuclear arsenal tenfold, and called the story "frankly disgusting":

"It's totally unnecessary [to increase our nukes] because I know what we have right now... We don't need an increase... and it's frankly disgusting the way the press is able to write whatever they want to write."
