Obama has been out of the presidential office for a while but it seems like his name still lingers around the white house. Trump, who commenced his  Twitter rant at 5:30am US eastern time, branded the claims a “new low.

Barack Obama has strongly denied the alleged claims. His spokesman Kevin Lewis said: “President Obama nor any White House official ever ordered surveillance on any US citizen.”

Trump commented: “How low has President Obama gone to tap my phones during the very sacred election process. This is Nixon/Watergate. Bad (or sick) guy!”

Trump later added: “Is it legal for a sitting President to be “wire tapping” a race for president prior to an election? Turned down by court earlier. A NEW LOW!”
