In his latest bid to prove that anyone in Washington was actually interested in listening to him during the closing stages of last year’s presidential campaign, Donald Trump is now accusing himself of wiretapping his own phones.
Previously the president has gone on record to accuse his predecessor in the White House of tapping phones in Trump Tower. When pressed to provide evidence to the Senate Intelligence Committee he later claimed it was the UK intelligence agencies that had “violated his golden receivers”
With both the office of former president Barack Obama and GCHQ dismissing the allegations, Mr Trump has once again moved the goal posts tweeting last night
“My conversations are great, the best, you’d want to listen to them. They are so great, really the best, that I’ve tapped my own phones so I can listen to me over and over”
White House spokesman, Steven Shinner, confirmed the president’s admission in a FOX News interview saying.
“Yes, the president does like the sound of his own voice and records all his calls for both personal use and so he can share them with the Russians. Did I say Russians? I mean Republicans. Yes, share his thoughts with fellow Republicans”
