In one of the most noteworthy moments from Face the Nation host John Dickerson’s all-access weekend with President Trump, an angry and peeved President shooed away Dickerson following a tense exchange about accusations the Trump team were spied on by then-President Barack Obama and his administration during the campaign.
The moment in question aired on Monday’s edition of CBS This Morning from the White House and arose when Dickerson asked Trump if he’s phoned Obama for “any advice that was helpful” in making tough decisions like launching the Syrian airstrikes
This led to Trump noting that Obama “was very nice to me, but after that, we’ve had some difficulties,” most prominently “what happened with surveillance and everybody saw what happened with surveillance.”
Trump added that everyone “saw what happened with surveillance and I think that was inappropriate, but that’s the way [it is].”
