The Federal Communications Commission doesn't directly license networks, meaning it would be impossible for Trump to carry out the threat, Politico notes. Specifically, one of the things that he's so angry about are the reports about Tillerson calling him a moron, Bob Corker saying that Trump could march us into World War III, and a couple other really inflammatory, but as far as we know true, stories that have come out in the last few days.

Responding to Mr Trump's musing about revoking licenses for broadcast networks critical of him, former United States federal prosecutor and frequent Trump critic Preet Bharara called the President childish.
