Wall Street Journal Proves Donald Trump Lied About Relationship With Kim Jong Un

President Donald Trump jumped on Twitter Sunday morning to claim that the Wall Street Journal lied when the newspaper reported that he claimed to have “a very good relationship” with North Korea dictator Kim Jong Un.

In his tweet, Trump wrote: “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. I said “I’d have a good relationship with Kim Jong Un,” a big difference. Fortunately we now record conversations with reporters…

Following President Trump’s tweet, the Wall Street Journal shot back, releasing an audiotape from the conversation in which Trump clearly stated, “and I probably have a very good relationship with Kim Jong Un of North Korea.”

The Wall Street Journal didn’t sit around and wait for Trump’s supporters to eat up his #fakenews. The publication put out the following tweet:

We have reviewed the audio from our interview with President Trump, as well as the transcript provided by an external service, and stand by what we reported. Here is audio of the portion the White House disputes.

Here’s the full tweet with the audio proof:

Notice the lack of the words, “I’d have” in the actual recording.
