US President Donald Trump tweeted on Saturday that he was told that former president Barack Obama had ordered that his phone be tapped just before his presidential victory.
"Terrible! Just found out that Obama had my 'wires tapped' in Trump Tower just before the victory. Nothing found. This is McCarthyism!" wrote Trump on his Twitter account.
"Is it legal for a sitting President to be "wire tapping" a race for president prior to an election? Turned down by court earlier. A NEW LOW" added Trump in a later tweet.
