During a joint press conference with President Trump and German Chancellor Angela Merkel, Trump spoke on his recent allegations that former President Obama and GCHQ illegally wiretapped Trump towers during the election: "As far as wiretapping, I guess, you know this past administration, at least we have something in common, perhaps."
