White House, WSJ go to the tape over "fake news" feud

President Trump tweeted this morning accusing the Wall Street Journal of maliciously misreporting a statement he made in a recent interview. The tweet followed a "FAKE NEWS" alert last night from Press Secretary Sarah Sanders.

At issue: Whether Trump said "I probably have a good relationship with Kim Jong-un," or "I'd probably have a good relationship with Kim Jong-un."
