"Mr. President: Words spoken by the President of the United States matter", the brief statement reads.
He continued, "Are you tonight recanting of the oath you took on January 20th to preserve, protect, and defend the First Amendment?".
Democratic lawmakers also blasted Trump's statement, asserting that the president was threatening to infringe on the First Amendment in response to coverage that he did not like.
Trump spoke to Sean Hannity in a wide-ranging interview on Fox News Wednesday night and again attacked the media - but praised Hannity. "One of the biggest mistakes in my career was supporting Ben Sasse".
Not only Sasse responded to the president's threats, however, with Federal Communications Commission (FCC) Commissioner Jessica Rosenworcel firing off two tweets on Wednesday afternoon.
When Trump was feuding with the Morning Joe hosts this summer, Sasse tweeted, "Please just stop".
They stressed that the Federal Communications Commission "is charged with making sure that broadcasters serve the public interest", but "this independent agency does not and can not make such judgments either on the basis of political viewpoint or at the president's whim". The First Amendment of the Constitution states Congress will make no law "abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press".
