CBS's John Dickerson asked Trump what he knows on Day 100 of his presidency that he wishes he knew on day one:

Trump: "Well, one of the things that I've learned is how dishonest the media is, really... NAFTA, as you know: I was going to terminate it, but I got a very nice call from a man I like, the president of Mexico.

"I got a very nice call from Justin Trudeau, the prime minister of Canada. And they said: Please, would you rather than terminating NAFTA — I was all set to do it. In fact, I was going to do it today. I was going to do it as we're sitting here....

"But they called up and they said, 'Would you negotiate?' And I said, 'Yes, I will negotiate.' ... But the media didn't cover it that way. The media said, oh, I didn't terminate NAFTA."
