Trump Backtracks, Claims Obama Was ‘Very Nice To Him’

Though President Trump continues to insist that Barack Obama wiretapped his home during the 2016 campaign, he acknowledged on Sunday that the former president “has been very nice to me.”

Aol.com reported that Trump, in an interview on Fox News, added: “While he’s nice personally, there doesn’t seem to be a lot of nice things happening behind the scenes, and that’s unfortunate. … He’s been very nice to me personally, but his people haven’t been nice, and there’s great animosity out there. There’s great anger.”

Trump claims that the Obama administration ordered “wiretaps” at Trump Tower in an effort to obtain information that could help Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton. However, no evidence of the surveillance has surfaced. FBI Director James Comey told the House Intelligence Committee Monday morning that the bureau has “no information” supporting the allegation.

Former Obama aide Alyssa Mastromonaco said on NBC News that the ex-president “rolled his eyes” when he heard Trump’s allegation. “It’s insane. It’s an insane accusation,” she commented. “It’s an insane accusation for a president to accuse another president of, and also anyone who knows Barack Obama knows he wouldn’t do that. … I don’t know how angry he is; I know the rest of us are pretty pissed.”

At the Intelligence Committee hearing, the panel’s Republican chairman (Rep. Devin Nunes) confirmed there is no proof the surveillance occurred. Many Democrats, including House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, believe Trump fabricated the wiretapping story to distract attention from his administration’s growing Russian scandal.

Many members of Trump’s campaign staff and White House have ties to Russia. Former campaign manager Paul Manafort was a paid adviser to a pro-Vladimir Putin oligarch in Ukraine, and National Security Adviser Michael Flynn was forced to resign because of his talks with a Russian ambassador while Obama was still president.

Comey told the committee that the FBI is investigating the Russian links, as well as possible cooperation between Russia and Trump’s campaign. U.S. intelligence agencies have accused Putin of ordering last summer’s cyberattacks on Democratic Party officials.
