Daniel Dale, the Toronto Star reporter who published off-record comments from President Donald Trump to Bloomberg reporters, in which Trump said he would not compromise with Canada in trade negotiations, denied Saturday that the Bloomberg reporters themselves leaked the comments.

Dale said he was making the denial to combat Trump’s accusations Friday that Bloomberg’s reporters had broken the off-record arrangement.

The New York Times’ Maggie Haberman, citing unnamed “people close to the White House,” said Friday that her sources had “raised [the] possibility that Trump ordered it put out.”
