Trump disputes newspaper quote attributed to him on North Korea

Trump disputes newspaper quote attributed to him on North Korea

The White House accused the Wall Street Journal of misquoting President Donald Trump.

The Wall Street Journal said it stands by its reporting despite the fact that the audio clearly shows President Trump saying "I'd", not "I".

Since the start of 2018, Trump and the press have continued their war of words, which was only increased after an interview with the Wall Street Journal who reported that the president claimed that he was in a good relationship with#Kim Jong-un, despite previously insulting the leader of North Korean on several occasions.

Mr. Trump insisted that he had actually started his sentence with the contraction "I'd", not "I", which would change the meaning from a surprising boast of an existing relationship into a prediction that he could have a good relationship with the dictator if he wanted it.

The article concluded that North Korea "will open the door of dialogue, contact and travel to anyone in South Korea, including the ruling party and opposition parties, organizations and individual personages of all backgrounds, if they truly want national reconciliation and unity".

"I don't want to comment on it". "I said 'I'd have a good relationship with Kim Jong Un, ' a big difference, " Trump continued. "I'm a very flexible person".

Israel has made neutralising the tunnel threat a top priority since its 2014 war, when Hamas militants made their way into Israel. Cornricus said that if the tunnel was only to smuggle harmless goods, there was no need for it to go under Kerem Shalom.

Both the newspaper and the White House posted their recordings of the interview and it appears the newspaper's recounting of the quote is accurate, even if Trump now says he meant that he would have a good relationship with Kim at some point down the road. I'm not saying I have or haven't.

"Nuclear attack is not a game", Democratic Representative Tulsi Gabbard said to ABC News Chief Anchor George Stephanopoulos on "This Week" Sunday.

Trump was unsatisfied and asked again, the officials said.

Any normal White House would have simply explained that Trump misspoke slightly and meant to say "I'd". "But I just don't...", Trump responds.

But the newspaper said it reviewed the audio from the interview and the transcript and believe his comments were reported accurately.

While they reached no consensus on Pyongyang's nuclear programme, the two countries did agree to have North Korea participate in the upcoming Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang. But I'll tell you, you know, when you talk about driving a wedge, we also have a thing called trade.
