The President stressed that the Wall Street Journal incorrectly quoted him as saying in the interview’s publication
The US President Donald trump on Sunday challenged the text of his interview with an American newspaper, according to which he allegedly said that he probably had very good relations with the North Korean leader Kim Jong-UN.
Trump wrote on Twitter that in an interview with the Wall Street Journal on Thursday he said he “probably could” maintain good relations with Kim Jong-UN, that is, using the subjunctive.
The white house released a snippet of the audio interview, which indicated that he said “could”. The Wall Street Journal published his audio recordings, which, according to the newspaper, confirms her version of what was said.
Trump’s statement was crucial because it showed that he believes that he had good relations with Kim Jong-UN, which opposes the pressure of the international community in demanding that North Korea has stopped testing nuclear weapons and ballistic missiles.
Trump dismissively called the North Korean leader a “geek” and “little rocket man”. In response, Kim Jong-UN called US President “senile senile old”.
North Korean leader warned the U.S. that it intends to acquire nuclear missiles capable of striking the United States. In response, Washington threatened North Korea with military action.
In an interview with the Wall Street Journal, trump was asked if he spoke to the North Korean leader, to which he replied: “I don’t want to comment on that. I’m not saying that I was talking or not talking. I just don’t want to comment.”
Trump spends a long weekend in connection with the Day of Martin Luther king, which is celebrated on Monday, at his estate Mar-a-Lago in palm beach, Florida.
“Of course, I never said, wrote trump on Twitter. – I said “probably could maintain good relations with Kim Jong-UN” and there is a big difference. Fortunately, now we record conversations with journalists. They knew exactly what I said and meant. They just needed a story. Fake news!”
A White house spokesman said that the delay in public denial of newspaper story caused by a failed attempt to call the publication to make corrections to publication.
