Trump denies saying he probably had good relationship with Kim

There are nearly 15,000 nuclear weapons in the world located at 107 sites in 14 countries

North Korea lashed out at President Donald Trump on Tuesday for a previous tweet mocking dictator Kim Jong Un's "nuclear button".

The White House then released its own audio recordings of the interview, in order to prove the WSJ was "misquoting" Trump.

Hyon Song-wol is rumored to be North Korean leader Kim Jong-un's ex-girlfriend and is believed to be in her 40s.

Fears of war have eased somewhat after the first round of intra-Korean talks in more than two years last week, which Trump has welcomed, ahead of February's Winter Olympics hosted by South Korea. Obviously I didn't say that.

A merit-based system is something Trump has called on for some time.

Just last week, the Journal stirred a new conflict with the White House with a report suggesting Trump's personal lawyer secretly paid an adult film actress $130,000 before the 2016 election.

But Trump's willingness to respond in kind - he has repeatedly called Kim "little rocket man" - is rare for an American leader and has led to several fiery verbal barrages since he took office almost a year ago.

"I have a great relationship with him, as you know, I have a great relationship with Prime Minister Abe of Japan, and [I/I'd] probably have a very good relationship with Kim Jong-un of North Korea".

Delegates were discussing ways to ensure enforcement of United Nations sanctions, including limiting North Korea's access to refined petroleum products, crude oil and industrial goods, Reuters reported. "FAKE NEWS!" Trump wrote in a pair of tweets.

The White House has also signaled a new willingness to engage in talks with North Korea, "at the appropriate time, and under the right circumstances".

The article said the book's popularity "foretells Trump's political demise" and that it represents "rapidly surging anti-Trump sentiments in the global community". Neither version of the audio provides any audible or contextual indication that Trump said "I'd" in a line of comments about foreign relationships that were otherwise not conditional.

North Korea has hit back at US President Donald Trump after he made claims about the size of his nuclear button. Prior to being elected in 2016, footage surfaced in which Trump bragged that "when you're a star ... you can do anything [to women]".

When asked by Politico's Jake Sherman why the White House waited so long to correct the Wall Street Journal, Sanders said they had asked for a correction Friday, but the paper refused.
