White House Accuses WSJ Of Misquote, Releases Tape To Prove It


Late Saturday night, White House press Secretary Sarah Sanders accused the Wall Street Journal of "FAKE NEWS," specifically saying that they misquoted the president to make it appear that he had said he has a very good relationship with North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un. Instead. the president claims he said he "would have" a good relationship if the two leaders met. The difference comes down to "I" vs. "I'd."

In a phone interview with the Journal, Trump is quoted as saying: "I probably have a very good relationship" with the North Korean dictator.

"Obviously I didn’t say that," Trump wrote on Twitter on Sunday morning. "I said 'I'd have a good relationship with Kim Jong Un,' a big difference," he continued. "Fortunately we now record conversations with reporters."

Sanders also said Sunday: "We first contacted the WSJ Friday morning and asked for a correction. They repeatedly refused to issue one despite clear audio evidence they'd misquoted POTUS."

The Journal released its own recording of the moment, and says they are standing by their original reporting:
