With wiretap claim Trump has now bashed all world leaders – except Putin 

your say March 21, 2017 01:00

Since he alleged on March 4 via twitter that his predecessor Barack Obama tapped his phones just before the 2016 presidential election, US President Donald Trump has presented no evidence to support his claim.



To make matters worse, his Press Secretary Sean Spicer seemed to extend the allegation to the British government’s Intelligence agency, GCHQ. Spencer implied that the British agency “helped” Obama spy on Trump.

Almost immediately, GCHQ responded in a rare statement that the allegations were nonsense, ridiculous and should be ignored.

It looks like all major countries of the world have seen their relationships with the US compromised by Trump – with only one exception: President Vladimir Putin’s Russia.
