Hurd also said Trump should apologize to the United Kingdom for accusations that a British intelligence agency helped Obama surveil Trump Tower.

“It’s not just sorry to the president, but also to the U.K. for the claims or the intimation that the U.K. was involved in this as well,” said.

White House press secretary Sean Spicer last week repeated claims made by a Fox News analyst who accused Britain's GCHQ intelligence agency of aiding Obama in wiretapping Trump Tower.  

Trump earlier this month accused Obama of wiretapping Trump Tower before the November election. Obama, through a spokesperson, denied that he or any White House official ordered surveillance.
