Trump SLAMS WSJ Over Relationship Status With Kim Jong Un


President Donald Trump tweeted out against The Wall Street Journal over claims that he allegedly said he had a good relationship with the North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un.

“The Wall Street Journal stated falsely that I said to them ‘I have a good relationship with Kim Jong Un’ (of N. Korea),” Trump tweeted.

“Obviously I didn’t say that. I said ‘I’d have a good relationship with Kim Jong Un,’ a big difference. Fortunately we now record conversations with reporters … and they knew exactly what I said and meant. They just wanted a story. FAKE NEWS!”

This after The WSJ reported that during an interview with them that the POTUS said he “probably” has a “very good relationship” with Kim, they claim: “I probably have a very good relationship with Kim Jong Un,” Trump said in the interview. “I have relationships with people. I think you people are surprised.”

When asked if he had spoken with Kim, Trump allegedly stated: “I’m not saying I have or haven’t,” Trump said. “I just don’t want to comment.”

Despite this, the Journal stated that they are going to stand by what they reported.

“After the White House challenged the Journal’s transcription and accuracy of the quote in a story, The Journal decided to release the relevant portion of the audio. The White House then released its audio version of the contested segment,” the Journal said.

“A transcript of the interview created by an independent transcription service for The Journal and posted online by the newspaper Thursday evening also said that Mr. Trump had said ‘I’ rather than ‘I’d.’ “

Despite this, President Trump stated to South Korea’s leader that he would be open to discussing terms with Kim.

“Sure. I always believe in talking,” he told reporters at Camp David. “If something can happen and something can come out of those talks, that would be a great thing for all of humanity.”
