President Trump and Kim Jong Un's traded threats of nuclear war have left many on edge.

"I've been calling on President Trump to directly negotiate with North Korea, to sit across the table from Kim Jong Un, work out the differences so that we can build a pathway toward denuclearization to remove this threat", Gabbard said.

Based on its version of Trump's quote, the Journal reported that "Trump said he believes he has developed a positive relationship with North Korea's leader despite their mutual public insults, suggesting he is open to diplomacy after months of escalating tensions over Pyongyang's nuclear-weapons program".

"You can only imagine.the panic, the terror, the chaos and confusion", she said, adding that people thought "they've got minutes to say goodbye to their loved ones, to find their loved ones, to try to find some kind of shelter somewhere". However, Trump denies this completely and claims that he said, "I'd probably have a very good relationship with Kim Jong Un", instead of "I".

On Saturday evening, White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders posted an image with the president's full quote in the Journal article and a correction from the White House, attacking the newspaper as "fake news".

While the audio is controversial, the White House has made it very clear where it stands on the issue.
