President Donald Trump grew visibly angry and walked away from an interview with CBS News reporter John Dickerson after Dickerson pressed him for proof that former President Barack Obama had illegally wiretapped Trump Tower.
“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 asked Trump for evidence that Obama had illegally wiretapped him, but Trump wouldn’t offer any — while insisting that “our side has been proven very strongly.”
Dickerson contradicted Trump, however, and pointed out that nothing had been proven.
“I just wanted to find out,” Dickerson said. “You’re the president of the United States. You said [Obama] was sick and bad.”
After some more attempts at getting Trump to present evidence, Trump simply said, “That’s enough, thank you,” and walked away from the interview.
I think "I don't stand by anything, you can take it the way you want" should be the take away quote from this exchange.
And good on John Dickerson for staying on it the way he did.
Trump does this pathetic double talk thing, that for some reason seems to work in a lot of situations to get him out of actually answering a question.
"Our side has been proven very strongly, and everybody's talking about it" is certainly NOT evidence of ANYTHING.
And Trump is such a baby that he simply cannot handle reporters who demand an actual answer to a question.
