U.S. President Donald Trump sparred Sunday with The Wall Street Journal over whether he already has or would have a good relationship with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, a frequent target of the U.S. leader's vitriol over Pyongyang's nuclear weapons development.

Four reporters for the newspaper interviewed Trump at the White House last week, with both the Journal and Trump officials recording it. But now they are disputing what he said about Kim.

At one point, Trump, according to the newspaper's transcript, said he has "a great relationship" with both Chinese President Xi Jinping and Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, adding, "and I probably have a very good relationship with Kim Jong Un of North Korea.

"I have relationships with people, I think you people are surprised," he said.

A Journal reporter interjected, saying, "Just to be clear, you havenít spoken to the North Korean leader, I mean when you say a relationship with Koreaó"

But Trump responded, "I donít want to comment on itóI donít want to comment, Iím not saying I have or I havenít. But I just donító"

The reporter said, "Some people would see your tweets, which are sometimes combative towards Kim Jong Un..."

Trump responded, "Sure, you see that a lot with me and then all of a sudden somebodyís my best friend. I could give you 20 examples. You give me 30. Iím a very flexible person."

On Sunday, however, Trump, in a Twitter comment, rebuffed the newspaper's version of the quote related to Kim, saying, "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 didnít say that. I said 'Iíd 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!"

The Wall Street Journal stated falsely that I said to them ďI have a good relationship with Kim Jong UnĒ (of N. Korea). Obviously I didnít say that. I said ďIíd have a good relationship with Kim Jong Un,Ē a big difference. Fortunately we now record conversations with reporters...
