President Trump told reporters that he was "late … always right" at a press conference on Wednesday with Polish President Andrzej Duda and also called the "untrusting" press.
Trump asked about the comments he made about the possibility of a Russian troop withdrawal from Venezuela and said that the country had fallen due to its socialist policies.
"Venezuela is obviously in the act of doing things, it makes a disrespectful evil," Trump told reporters at the Oval Office. "It's … one of the richest countries, there is a huge oil, a great thing, just showing you when you have a bad system, becoming a socialist or worse, and now people have no food," 1
Then Trump asked why he sent a tweet about possible withdrawal by Russian troops, despite their claims against the fight. The president remains confident that he has proven to be correct and said he has always won real media contentions.
"Well let's see who's right," he returned. "Do you know what to do? Look at the end of the right, you're okay to watch it, Okay? And we'll see who's right, eventually, I'm right."
Trump called on the media to disbelieve and said it was a remedy to meet other world leaders at the G20 summit by the end of June, without a statement in the room.
"I will meet with Putin in G20 and I will meet with President Xi in the G20. I will meet with many G20 leaders," he said.

"Well, it's probably easier [if the press was in the room] because those people have no respect so it's probably better , would you like to be in the room? " Trump asked April Ryan CNN. "I think, it's more likely that if we have people in the room because you do not trust anything."
This is not the first time that Trump has a hot exchange with a CNN personality. The president is known for opposing CNN's White House businesswoman Jim Acosta on border security and immigration issues – especially in his press conference following the 2018 midterm elections when Acosta refuses to give up the mic.
The G20 summit will take place in Osaka, Japan from June 28 to 29.
