Regardless of whether Trump's wiretapping claim should be taken literally or not, the Intelligence committee specifically said there was no evidence he was the subject of any surveillance. That kinda covers all the bases.

And GCHQ has said they didn't conduct any surveillance on Trump, unlike the other Americans they have conducted surveillance on in their deal with the NSA.

Good overview of this whole saga from JustSecurity...

Quote:
White House Walks Back Wiretapping Claim

On Monday, Mar. 13, White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer said that Trump’s allegation that Obama had wiretapped his phones during the campaign was not meant to be taken literally, saying that Trump “doesn’t really think that President Obama went up and tapped his phone personally.” Spicer clarified that Trump was referring to general surveillance activities during the presidential election, not a specific telephone wiretap.

On Wednesday, however, “in the latest verbal acrobatics” from the White House, Spicer stated Trump was “extremely confident” that the Justice Department would submit evidence to back up Trump’s claim. Spicer said Trump was confident the forthcoming information would “vindicate him.” In an interview with Fox News’ Tucker Carlson aired on Wednesday night, Trump said wiretap “covers a lot of different things” and said there would be “some very interesting items coming to the forefront over the next two weeks.”

On Thursday, despite statements from House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes (R-Calif.) and from Democratic and Republican leaders in the Senate Intelligence Committee that they found no such evidence, Spicer stated that Trump “stands by” his wiretapping claims. Over the course of the next ten minutes, Spicer then continued to read a list of new stories discussing inquiries into Trump’s campaign aides and Russian officials, though apparently none seemed to confirm that Trump Tower or the president’s telephones had been tapped. For a full timeline of the White House’s rollercoaster of responses, see here.

And it's pointed out that Trump did quite specifically allege his phones had been tapped: "I'd bet a good lawyer could make a great case out of the fact that President Obama was tapping my phones in October, just prior to Election!" (Source)

I certainly won't claim he has an easy job.

Why?  Does she speak for the people of the United States as Spicer does?

No she doesn't, and it's irrelevant to the point I made anyway.
It doesn't matter if you agree with it. I was simply speaking for myself.
