New Delhi [India], Mar. 4 (ANI): Relentless in his barrage on his predecessor, U.S. President Donald Trump on Saturday accused Barack Obama of having tapped the Trump Tower before the election victory. "Terrible! Just found out that Obama had my "wires tapped" in Trump Tower just before the victory. Nothing found. This is McCarthyism!," the President tweeted.

Asserting that this development was a "new low", Trump questioned the legality of the entire situation.
I'd bet a good lawyer could make a great case out of the fact that President Obama was tapping my phones in October, just prior to Election!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump)
The fresh accusation comes after Trump alleged that Obama was responsible for the leaks within the present U.S. administration. Reiterating that Obama's 'people' were definitely behind the leak, Trump stated that some of the leaks are really serious as they are related to national security. However, Trump did not offer any evidence for his claim. Last month, Trump told Fox News that reports of his calls with the leaders of Mexico and Australia were caused by leaks from "Obama people." Trump's administration has claimed to have been plagued by leaks within his administration to the media. (ANI)
