The New York Times Weighs In On Trump's Claim That They 'Tricked' Bob Corker

By Jonna Ivin-Patton

 Writer Jonathan Martin with The New York Times is setting the record straight about his interview with Bob Corker after Donald Trump sent out the following tweet.


In a piece written for the the Times Martin had this to say about the interview with the Senator:

 "As the reporter who conducted the 25-minute telephone interview with Mr. Corker, I thought I would offer more insight about what actually transpired.  Far from being set up, Mr. Corker asked that I tape our conversation. 
 'I know they’re recording it, and I hope you are, too,' he said as two of his aides listened in on other lines, one of them also taping the interview. As with most on-the-record discussions with an elected official, I was recording our conversation to ensure accuracy."
