Many do not believe President Trump’s claim that Trump Tower was wiretapped or bugged, even though he says he will present evidence soon. In his meeting with German Chancellor Angela Merkel, Trump joked or suggested that she may also have been wiretapped.
President Trump on Friday once again suggested former President Barack Obama wiretapped him during the 2016 election, joking during a joint news conference with German Chancellor Angela Merkel that they have “something in common.”
The president briefly touched on the wiretapping comment controversy when asked by a reporter about his allegations from earlier this month.
“At least we have something in common, perhaps,” Trump quipped.
Merkel cracked a smile as reporters in the room laughed.
