“(I) probably wouldn’t be here right now, but very seldom. We have a tremendous group of people that listen and I can get around the media when the media doesn’t tell the truth, so I like that,” Trump told reporters at a joint White House news conference with visiting German Chancellor Angela Merkel.

Trump was responding to a question put up by a German reporter if he ever regretted his tweets.

“By the way, my second question, are there from time to time tweets that you regret,” a German reporter asked, as per PTI.

Sharing the dais with Merkel, Trump stated that he and the German leader probably shared something when it came to the predecessor Obama Administration.

He was responding to a question pertaining to wiretapping.

“As far as wiretapping, I guess by this past administration, at least we have something in common, perhaps,” Trump said.

“And just to finish your question, we said nothing. All we did was quote a certain very talented legal mind who was the one responsible for saying that on television. I didn’t make an opinion on it,” Trump said.
