President Donald Trump not only continues to imply that former President Barack Obama wiretapped his phone when Trump was a candidate, but when pressed for proof—which everyone, including his staff, knows doesn’t exist—Trump grew angry and ended the interview.

“He was very nice to me, but after that, we’ve had some difficulties,” said Trump. “So, it doesn’t matter. You know, words are less important to me than deeds, and you saw what happened with surveillance.”

Dickerson then stated what everyone besides Trump seems to be willing to admit: Nothing has been proved. Nothing!
“I just wanted to find out,” Dickerson said. “You’re the president of the United States. You said [Obama] was sick and bad.”
