Trump 'very confident' in his unsubstantiated wiretap claims, confidant says

The CEO of Newsmax Media also described the president as a quick learner.

— -- Christopher Ruddy, the CEO of Newsmax Media and a friend of President Donald Trump's, described him as being "very confident and very angry" about his belief that President Barack Obama ordered a wiretap of Trump Tower, despite having provided no evidence to the public to back up his claims.

Ruddy's assessment comes as members of Trump's administration are defending his comments, which he made on Twitter over the weekend.

"The administration was wiretapping American citizens," Sanders said. "His administration could have done this."
