Trump Says He And Merkel May Have Both Been Wiretapped? Barack Obama 'approved tapping Angela Merkel's phone 3 years ago'

 Obama 'approved tapping Merkel's phone 3 years ago'

Barack Obama was dragged into the trans-Atlantic spying row after it was claimed he personally authorised the monitoring of Angela Merkel’s phone three years ago.

The president allegedly allowed US intelligence to listen to calls from the German Chancellor’s mobile phone after he was briefed on the operation by Keith Alexander, director of the National Security Agency (NSA), in 2010.

Speaking at Friday's press conference with German Chancellor Angela Merkel, President Donald Trump said that he thinks they had both been wiretapped by the Obama administration. Trump made the comment that he thought they had "something in common" regarding being spied on by the former president.
