SEAN SPICER: DONALD TRUMP HAS NO REGRETS ABOUT MAKING FALSE ACCUSATIONS AGAINST BARACK OBAMA

Donald Trump has “no regrets” about accusing his predecessor of wiretapping Trump Tower, the White House press secretary has insisted.

Sean Spicer said that Mr Trump’s explosive allegations over the weekend still stood, and that the president would now wait for investigations to run their course.

Asked whether it was not a waste of time and money for congressional and senatorial committees to investigate Mr Trump’s baseless allegations, Mr Spicer replied that it was “not about new proof”.

The White House press secretary devoted much of his press conference to detailing Monday night’s proposal for a new Republican healthcare plan.

In a day which was designed to be all about the Republicans’ much-vaunted healthcare plans, Mr Trump started the day by claiming that 122 “vicious” Guantanamo inmates had returned to the battlefield, “released by the Obama administration”.
