White House pushes back over Trump's North Korea quote

Trump reportedly interrupted intel briefing to ask Korean American, “Where are you from?”

Asked on the ABC programme "This Week" whether the president's tweet was a good idea, Haley said: "I think that (Trump) always has to keep Kim on his toes".

The Wall Street Journal quoted Trump as saying in an interview on Thursday: "I probably have a very good relationship with Kim Jong-Un".

"We're not going to let them go and dramatize the fact that they have a button right on their desk and they can destroy America", she said. "Obviously I didn't say that. I just don't want to comment".

'I said I'd have a good relationship with Kim Jong Un, a big difference.

North Korea says that the future of inter-Korean relations depends on how South Korea will work to create a positive environment for reconciliation and reunification of the two Koreas.

Donald Trump began his Sunday morning with his latest attack on the free press - this time, disputing audio that the Wall Street Journal already released of their interview with the president. The White House then released its audio version of the contested segment, " the newspaper wrote.

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

Asked if he had spoken with Mr Kim, the President said cryptically: "I don't want to comment on it". News video and audio recordings of Trump's freewheeling exchange with lawmakers Tuesday show that he agreed after Sen.

She was proposing a legislative fix to address the fate of the almost 700,000 young undocumented immigrants known as "dreamers".

In sum: The president of the United States, the person who's supposed to represent the best of the country, behaved in a fashion that would likely get a midlevel manager at a company fired. A White House official said that any omission from the transcript was unintentional and that the context of the conversation was clear.
