In his first interview since his unsubstantiated claim that he was wiretapped by then-President Obama, President Trump said the sources of information behind his tweets were primarily news reports.
"Well, I've been reading about things," Trump said in an interview with Fox News' Tucker Carlson that aired Wednesday night.
Trump said among "other things" that he read about wiretapping was a New York Times article and a Fox News report.
"I said, 'Wait a minute, there's a lot of wiretapping being talked about,'" Trump said. "I've been seeing a lot of things."
But the examples he put forward don't appear to back up his claim that Obama ordered a wiretap of Trump Tower in New York.
