Vastavam web: US President Donald Trump today denied having told a leading US daily that he shared a “good relationship” with North Korean leader Kim Jong-un, asserting that he was “falsely” quoted in the “fake news” story.In an interview on Thursday, ‘The Wall Street Journal’ reported that Trump had developed a positive relationship with the North Korea’s leader despite their differences.”The Wall Street Journal stated falsely that I said to them ‘I have a good relationship with Kim Jong Un’ (of N Korea). Obviously, I didn’t say that,” Trump tweeted.

“I said I’d have a good relationship with Kim Jong Un, a big difference. Fortunately, we now record conversations with reporters…and they knew exactly what I said and meant. They just wanted a story. FAKE NEWS!” Trump said.”As you know, I have a great relationship with Prime Minister Abe of Japan and I would probably have a very good relationship with Kim Jong un of North Korea,” the President said in the audio.”The Mainstream Media is crazed that WE won the election!” Trump tweeted, expressing his frustration over his coverage by the mainstream media.

Trump has ridiculed Kim in the past, calling him a “maniac” and “little rocket man”.Last week, Trump told South Korea’s President Moon Jae-in that he was open to direct talks with North Korea on its nuclear programme.”Sure. I always believe in talking. If something can happen and something can come out of those talks, that would be a great thing for all of humanity,” he told reporters.
