President Trump is being called a conspiracy theorist Monday after saying reports about the Obama administration wiretapping him during his campaign are true.

He added later, “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! I'd bet a good lawyer could make a great case out of the fact that President Obama was tapping my phones in October, just prior to Election!”

“How low has President Obama gone to tapp [sic] my phones during the very sacred election process,” he continued. “This is Nixon/Watergate. Bad (or sick) guy!”
