TRANSLATOR FOR REPORTER: And Mr. President, my question addressed to you, if I may --
REPORTER: -- rejected White House claims that the alleged wiretapping on you, on Trump Tower, on Trump Organization or members of your campaign was -- that British intelligence was either responsible for it or involved in it. After these claims are rejected, what is your take on that? Are there other suspects or do you think it was a mistake to blame British intelligence for this? And, by the way, my second question, are there from time to time tweets that you regret and inside --
DONALD TRUMP: Very seldom.
REPORTER: Very seldom. So you never would have wished not to have --
TRUMP: Very seldom. Probably wouldn't be here right now, but it's very seldom. We have a tremendous group of people that listen and I can get around the media when the media doesn't tell the truth so I like that. As far as wiretapping, I guess by this past administration, at least we have something in common perhaps. And just to finish your question, we said nothing. All we did was quote a certain very talented legal mind [Fox News' Andrew Napolitano] who was the one responsible for saying that on television. I didn't make an opinion on it. That was a statement made by a very talented lawyer on Fox. And so you shouldn't be talking to me, you should be talking to Fox, OK?
