Spying on President Trump's presidential campaign - the president has long made that claim.

(SOUNDBITE OF ARCHIVED RECORDING)

Trump has been frustrated with the inability of DHS to stop a surge of Central American migrant families and children from crossing the Southern border.

President Trump responded to the mosque shootings in New Zealand on Friday by saying it was a terrible thing. But again, contradicting national security experts, he also minimized the threat that white nationalism poses worldwide.
