President Donald Trump is disputing a quote attributed to him throughout a newspaper interview about relations with North Korea’s chief.
The Wall Road Journal on Thursday quoted Trump as saying: “I in all probability have an excellent relationship with Kim Jong Un.”
Trump tweeted Sunday: “The Wall Road Journal said falsely that I stated to them ‘I’ve an excellent relationship with Kim Jong Un’ (of N. Korea). Clearly I did not say that. I stated ‘I might have a great relationship with Kim Jong Un,’ an enormous distinction. Fortuitously we now document conversations with reporters they usually knew precisely what I stated and meant. They only needed a narrative. FAKE NEWS!”
White Home spokeswoman Sarah Huckabee Sanders and the newspaper have launched separate audio clips.
The Wall Road Journal says it stands by its reporting.
