NY Times Questions Statistic Provided by Trump, Admits He Was Right a Paragraph Later

A New York Times report published Thursday seemed mystified about where President Donald Trump got a statistic, only to confirm Trump was correct in the next paragraph.

Trump attacked China for ramping up trade with North Korea in a Wednesday tweet, saying that "trade between China and North Korea grew almost 40% in the first quarter."

But Trump did not say 40 percent; he said "almost" 40 percent. In the very next paragraph, the Times reported that he was in the right ballpark and provided the source.
