German reporters press Trump on wiretap claims, ‘fake news’

The Hill by Jonathan Easley --

Foreign reporters challenged President Trump to address his wiretapping accusation and attacks on the media at a joint press conference with German Chancellor Angela Merkel on Friday.
A German reporter asked Trump whether he regrets claiming that former President Obama bugged Trump Tower during the presidential campaign, provoking Trump to joke about reports that the National Security Agency had once monitored Merkel’s phone under Obama.
“As far as wiretapping, I guess by this past administration, at least we have something in common, perhaps,” Trump said with a grin during an otherwise subdued press conference.
