“Wow, I made OFF THE RECORD COMMENTS to Bloomberg concerning Canada, and this powerful understanding was BLATANTLY VIOLATED,” he tweeted. “Oh well, just more dishonest reporting. I am used to it. At least Canada knows where I stand!”

Dale subsequently tweeted this is pretty clear confirmation from Trump that his reporting was accurate, but he added, “I won’t be commenting on the source of the leaked quotes.”
