“I think it was a combination of things, but I tell you, the world blew up when I did that,’ he said.
The 45th president said the moment came during his 2016 contest against Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton and “somebody suggested” that then-President Barack Obama’s White House was spying on the Trump campaign.
“I felt there was something strange going on, really strange, and I just put it out,” Trump said.
“I got a call like two minutes later from the head of communications saying … ‘the wires are burning up. They’re smoking,'” despite it being a Saturday, as he recalled.
“And now I know why,” Trump continued.
“Because, they said, ‘Oh my God, they caught us.'”
