When Dickerson asked Trump if Obama had given him any advice, the president immediately proceeded to set his stage.

US President Donald Trump has cut short an interview with CBS after being asked about claims former President Barack Obama wiretapped his campaign.

Dickerson wanted to clarify if the president still stood by those views, but instead of an answer, he was met with anger and agitation.

Though the president has stood by his assertion, the intelligence community has not supported Trump's claim, and the White House has wavered on whether the president's tweets should be interpreted literally.

"I love your show", Trump told Dickerson to his face.

Discussing his predecessor in the Oval Office, Trump said President Obama "was very nice to me but after that we've had some difficulties".

Dickerson then said: "I'm asking you because you don't want it to be fake news". "He was very nice to me with words, and when I was with him, but after that there has been no relationship", Trump insisted. And it's a topic that should be number one. Shortly after cutting short the interview Saturday, Dickerson flew with the president on Air Force One and then had dinner with him, according to a person with knowledge of the interaction. "You said [Obama] was sick and bad".

On "CBS This Morning", Ivanka Trump said she enjoyed living in Washington and revealed she took a late-night stroll Sunday on the Washington Mall with Kushner.

DICKERSON: I want to know your opinion.

"But I want to know your opinions".

Trump: You don't have to ask me.

"Alright, that's enough. Thank you".

At this point, Trump shut down the interview completely.

King asked Dickerson if he was escorted out of the Oval Office. "We're going to get the health care bill to the floor of the House, I'm very confident". "Thank you", before waving the reporter away and sitting down at his desk. "You can have your own opinions".

PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP: OK, it's enough.

DICKERSON: How do you learn that skill?

Watch the interview below.

Trump's claims of wiretapping made in a series of tweets in March caused uproar but he has since made no serious effort to push for an inquiry and provided no evidence.
