During a generally cordial press conference, they discussed Nato, trade and the president’s claim that Obama asked British intelligence to wiretap Trump Towers.
The president also revealed he “very seldom, very seldom” regrets what he tweets, adding that otherwise he “probably wouldn’t be here right now. ”
Mr Trump also strongly rejected the suggestion that he believed in isolationism.
“I don’t believe in an isolationist policy, but the US has been treated very, very unfairly and that has got to stop,” he sad.
He said the idea he was an isolationist was “fake news.”
