Trump disputes newspaper quote attributed to him on North Korea

The White House has denied that President Donald Trump said he had a good relationship with North Korean leader Kim Jong-Un

The White House is disputing a quote by Trump in an interview published Thursday by the Wall Street Journal.

Since the start of 2018, Trump and the press have continued their war of words, which was only increased after an interview with the Wall Street Journal who reported that the president claimed that he was in a good relationship with#Kim Jong-un, despite previously insulting the leader of North Korean on several occasions. "I'D - I'D - I'D, NOT I", Sanders posted in a tweet.

On Sunday, Trump himself weighed in on the incident, writing on Twitter that the Journal reporters "knew exactly what I said and meant".

Trump asked the elected officials if they knew just one member of his incoming cabinet - Ben Carson - according to two people in the room.

The quote in question has to do with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un. "To the Korean nation that has undergone the tragedy of division for many years, it is a vital demand which can no longer be delayed to end the history of confrontation", said Rodong Sinmun, the official daily of the North Korea's ruling Workers' Party of Korea, Xinhua news agency reported.

She added that the White House had multiple calls and emails with the Wall Street Journal requesting a correction, beginning on Friday morning.

TRUMP: Sure, you see that a lot with me and then all of a sudden somebody's my best friend. I could give you 20 examples.

Asked if he had spoken with Mr Kim, the President said cryptically: "I don't want to comment on it. I'm a very flexible person". "The United States and North Korea to de-escalate and to denuclearize and get rid of this nuclear threat".

'The Mainstream Media is crazed that WE won the election!' Trump tweeted, expressing his frustration over his coverage by the mainstream media.

The president had previously dismissed the idea of direct talks with North Korea, tweeting in October that negotiations with the country were a waste of time.
