White House pushes back over Trump's North Korea quote

A career intelligence analyst who is an expert in hostage policy stood before President Donald Trump in the Oval Office last fall to brief him on the impending release of a family long held in Pakistan under uncertain circumstances.

Sanders disputed the Journal's audio and transcript that shows Trump said, "I probably have a very good relationship with Kim Jong Un of North Korea".

The newspaper and Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders simultaneously shared audio recordings from the January 11 interview with Trump on their Twitter accounts at around midnight Saturday. These, while not completely clear, appeared to support Sanders' account.

Asked if by The Wall Street Journal if he had spoken to Kim, Trump said: "I don't want to comment on it".

"I have relationships with people. NOT I!" the message read, with "I'D" in red ink, under a red banner reading "FAKE NEWS".

While Kim has been on the receiving end of Trump's most colorful intercontinental insults, which have ranged from from "little rocket man" to "sick puppy, ' the Islamic Republic of Iran, a 'murderous regime" according to the president, is a close second.

"I believe, Mr Kim Jong-un has certainly won this round", he added, also saying that the leader "has a nuclear (charge) and a ... missile with a range of up to 13,000 kilometers that can reach almost any place on Earth or at least any territory of his potential adversary".
