West Palm Beach, Fla.( CNN) President Donald Trump made a stunning claim Saturday, alleging without offering evidence that his predecessor, Barack Obama, wiretapped his phones at Trump Tower ahead of the 2016 election.
“Terrible! Just found out that Obama had my ‘wires tapped’ in Trump Tower just before the victory. Nothing procured. This is McCarthyism! ” Trump tweeted early Saturday morning in one part of a six-tweet denunciation that began just after 6:30 a.m.
The President went on to compare the alleged tap of his phones to Watergate and called Obama “bad( or sick ). ”
