“Oh well, just more dishonest reporting. I am used to it.”
President Trump blasted the news media on Friday after apparently off-the-record comments he made about Canada were leaked, calling it another example of “dishonest reporting.”
“Wow, I made OFF THE RECORD COMMENTS to Bloomberg concerning Canada, and this powerful understanding was BLATANTLY VIOLATED,” Trump asserted in a tweet.
“Oh well, just more dishonest reporting. I am used to it. At least Canada knows where I stand!” Trump added, apparently confirming the comments.
Trump’s attack on the media came only hours after The Toronto Star reported that Trump privately said he wouldn’t compromise in regards to trade with Canada.
Trump’s comments about Canada reportedly came during an interview with Bloomberg News in the Oval Office on Thursday.
