"As far as wiretapping, at least I guess, by this past administration, at least we have something in common, perhaps," Trump said while pointing to Merkel, who did not respond to the president's comment.

The question was posed by a German news reporter.

In October 2013, the German government obtained information that the United States might have monitored Merkel's mobile phone — and she had called President Barack Obama to demand a clarification on the issue.
Merkel had told Obama that if such surveillance had occurred, it would represent a "grave breach of trust" between the allies, her spokesman said at the time.

However, the White House said then that Obama had assured Merkel that the United States "is not monitoring and will not monitor" her communications.
