Spicer: no collusion between Trump's campaign and Russian Federation

The White House on Monday refused to back off Donald Trump's extraordinary and unfounded claim that Barack Obama wiretapped the phones in Trump Tower during the 2016 presidential campaign, despite the head of the Federal Bureau of Investigation saying he had "no information" to support the claim.

"It certainly wasn't our intention to say that today because we don't have any information on that subject", he said.

"How you use the game of golf is something that he's talked about", said Spicer.

Since taking office, however, Trump, an avid golfer who is reportedly a better player than his predecessor, has not shied away from his favorite pastime.

So why won't the White House be more forthcoming about his time on the course? In fact, at this point, it might just as well serve the United States if Trump spent 7 days a week playing golf rather than getting his dirty fingerprints on everything.

Months ago when the idea of Trump being our president was still a distant possibility, the nominee himself said while sitting next to Governor Chris Christie that he couldn't understand how a president would even leave the White House.

"You saw him utilize this as an opportunity with (Japanese) Prime Minister Abe to help foster deeper relationships in Asia", Spicer said during his press briefing Monday when asked about the apparent hypocrisy.

"To look at some individual that was there for a short period of time or separately individuals who really didn't play any role in the campaign and to suggest that those are the basis for anything is a bit ridiculous", he added.

Trump also visited his course in Sterling, Virginia, on March 11 for a meeting.

Spicer said reporters have jumped to conclusions and falsely assumed in some instances that the president was golfing.

"We pay for Obama's travel so he can fundraise millions so Democrats can run on lies", he tweeted the next day.

During the Monday briefing, Spicer also clarified his conversation with British officials after he repeated an unsubstantiated report from a Fox News pundit that the country's spy agency had helped Obama eavesdrop on Trump during the presidential campaign a year ago.

Trump's aides have not done so.
