Trump says he was misquoted on ties with Kim

"Here is audio of the portion the White House disputes", the.

Press Secretary Sarah Sanders condemned The Wall Street Journal report as "fake news" and released the White House's own audio from the interview, which cuts off just before Trump seems to start saying, "I would".

I have a great relationship with him, as you know I have a great relationship with Prime Minister Abe of Japan and I probably have a very good relationship with Kim Jong Un of North Korea.

Sanders produced audio recordings of Trump's remarks, where he is heard saying "I'd" - not "I" - as the WSJ claims (listen below).

The Wall Street Journal on Sunday pushed back against Trump's claim, saying the publication "stands by what it reported".

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.

Gabbard pointed out that North Koreans has been developing nuclear weapons because they see them as the only deterrent against the US invading and trying to topple their government.

Yet Trump's "good relationship" comment suggests he may newly be open to diplomacy. They don't even try to get it right, or correct it when they are wrong.

Trump has derided the North Korean leader as a "maniac" and referred to him as "little rocket man".
