WSJ 'falsely' quoted North Korea comments

WSJ 'falsely' quoted North Korea comments

"I probably have a very good relationship with Kim Jong Un of North Korea", Trump said in the interview, according to.

Trump should "sit across the table from Kim Jong Un without preconditions, work out the differences, figure out a way to build this pathway towards denuclearization, because there is so much at stake", she said.

In a second tweet, Trump finished the thought. "Fortunately we now record conversations with reporters..."

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".

The Wall Street Journal, which - like Fox News - is owned by Rupert Murdoch, stood by its reporting. Here is audio of the portion the White House disputes.

The White House and the newspaper sparred over the weekend about the accuracy of the quote.

WSJ's transcript cites Trump as saying: "With that being said, President Xi has been extremely generous with what he's said, I like him a lot".

The Journal transcribed the audio of Trump saying, "I probably have a very good relationship with Kim Jong Un". Obviously I didn't say that.

The WSJ released the transcript of the interview along with the disputed audio, in a bid to clarify the matter.

"I don't want to comment on it - I don't want to comment, I'm not saying I have or I haven't", Trump responded.

South Korea said Mr Trump denied perusing a "bloody nose" strategy in his call with Mr Moon this week. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., asked whether the president would support a "clean DACA bill".

Trump also suggested Sunday that any efforts to make permanent protections for illegal immigrants under the Obama-era Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, or DACA, are over because Democrats are not really interested in negotiating.
