‘This is McCarthyism’; Donald Trump claims Barack Obama wiretapped his office

During the same Twitter tirade, Trump also defended Jeff Sessions’ contact with Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak, saying the first meeting between the two was set up by the Obama administration. He added Kisylak had been to Obama’s White House 22 times, including four times last year.
"Sad end to great show." "Arnold Schwarzenegger isn’t voluntarily leaving the Apprentice, he was fired by his bad (pathetic) ratings, not by me," he tweeted about an hour later.
