Britain’s communications intelligence agency GCHQ has issued a statement denying it wiretapped Donald Trump during the US presidential campaign.
The unusual move by the agency came after White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer cited claims first made on US TV channel Fox News earlier this week.
GCHQ responded by saying the allegations were “nonsense, utterly ridiculous and should be ignored”. Mr Trump has claimed that Trump Tower in New York was under surveillance. But he has provided no evidence for the claim(BBC,2017).
