When asked about Trump alleging that GCHQ and Barack Obama illegally wiretapped Trump tower, during a joint press conference with German Chancellor Angela Merkel, Trump had this to say in his defense: "We said nothing. All we did was quote a certain, very talented legal mind who was the one responsible for saying that on television. I didn't make an opinion on it. That was a statement made by a very talented lawyer on Fox, so you shouldn't be talking to me, you should be talking to Fox."
