Ok, your right, I won’t squabble over that point.
This is about what Trump said, and how what he said comports with the facts.
Fact#1, Trump accused Obama directly of wiretapping him (Trump). (false)
Fact#2: Trump claimed that Trump Tower was under surveillance. (false)
#1 Obama did not give the order, though he may have been aware of it, I don’t know that’s been confirmed.
#2 Manafort was under surveillance and he had a residence at Trump Tower, not all of Trump Tower was under surveillance. Unless you think that it would be ok to claim that everwhere Manafort went was “under surveillance”.
Show me where Trump said that the “Obama administration” wiretapped the “Trump campaign”.
I posted most of the relevant Tweet’s above.
He said, “Obama had his wires tapped.” That is significantly different.
It’s not even correct to say that his “campaign” was being surveilled. At this point, Manafort is the only person that I’m aware of that was under surveillance at that time and the reason for the justification for the surveillance, to my knowledge, was regarding Manafort’s activities, not the campaign’s activities. Paul Manafort is a member of Trump’s campaign, he cannot be described as “the campaign”.
