Trump Says 'I Don't Stand by Anything' When Asked If He Still Thinks Obama Wiretapped Him

Some believe his statement perfectly sums up his first 100 days.

Published May 1, 2017

During an interview at the White House with CBS Morning News, Donald Trump appeared to back away from claims that Barack Obama had him wiretapped. When CBS's John Dickerson asked Trump if he stood behind his claims that Obama was a "sick" and "bad" guy, the president refused to give a direct answer. 

"I don't stand by anything," Trump told Dickerson.

  1. During the brief interview, Trump repeatedly said, 'you saw what happened with surveillance,' without offering specific details
  2. After getting pressed about whether or not he still believes he was wiretapped, Trump abruptly ended the interview
  3. However, his admission that he doesn't 'stand by anything' quickly became a trending topic
  4. People are not only saying the statement is the most factual thing he's ever said, but they also believe it perfectly encompasses his presidency thus far
