The Hill reports:
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.”
Trump’s attack on the media came only hours after The Toronto Sun reported that Trump privately said he wouldn’t compromise in regards to trade with Canada.
It is unclear how The Sun obtained Trump’s remarks in the interview. Bloomberg editor-in-chief John Micklethwait attended the interview and did not dispute the authenticity of the remarks that The Star reported.
Wow, I made OFF THE RECORD COMMENTS to Bloomberg concerning Canada, and this powerful understanding was BLATANTLY VIOLATED. Oh well, just more dishonest reporting. I am used to it. At least Canada knows where I stand!
