Obama Reportedly ‘Livid’ With Trump Over Wiretapping Tweets

Obama Reportedly Livid With Trump Over Wiretapping TweetsFormer President Barack Obama was “livid over [President Trump’s] accusation that he bugged the Republican campaign offices, believing that Mr. Trump was questioning both the integrity of the office of the president and Mr. Obama himself,” people close to Obama told The Wall Street Journal. Things have been souring between Trump and his predecessor for a while now, after an initially cordial meeting between the two immediately following Trump’s election win in November. While Obama once offered before Trump’s inauguration to provide Trump with counsel should he need it, “they haven’t spoken [since Inauguration Day],” The Wall Street Journal writes. “Mr. Trump tried to call Mr. Obama to thank him for the traditional letter that one president leaves for his successor in the Oval Office. Mr. Obama was traveling at the time and the two never connected.”
