Republican says Donald Trump should apologise to UK and Obama for wiretapping claims

Posted In: News Date:Mar 19th, 2017

A Republican Representative said on national television that Donald Trump should apologise to the UK and former President Barack Obama amid growing tensions due to his unsubstantiated claims that he was illegally wiretapped.

Texas Representative Will Hurd said he learnt to apologise from his grandfather, and he was then questioned as to whether he thought the President should take the same advice.

“I think so,” he told ABC’s This Week.

“We live in a very dangerous world and we can’t do it alone, and when we have a major ally – and it’s not just sorry to the President [Obama] but also to the UK, for the claims, or the intimation, that the UK was involved in this as well,” he added.
