US President Donald Trump accused his predecessor Barack Obama of wire tapping him in October during the late stages of the presidential election campaign.
“How low has President Obama gone to tapp my phones during the very sacred election process. This is Nixon/Watergate. Bad (or sick) guy!,” Trump said in a series of tweets.
A spokesman for Obama has refuted Trump’s accusations that the Trump Tower was wiretapped prior to presidential elections.
"A cardinal rule of the Obama administration was that no White House official ever interfered with any independent investigation led by the Department of Justice," Obama spokesman Kevin Lewis said.
Meanwhile, the Trump camp is organising rallies across the US in a bid to counter the protests against the President that have been taking place since his election in November.
