 JOHN DICKERSON: Did President Obama give you any advice that was helpful? That you think, wow, he really was--
DONALD TRUMP:  -- Well, he was very nice to me. But after that, we've had some difficulties. So it doesn't matter. You know, words are less important to me than deeds. And you-- you saw what happened with surveillance. And everybody saw what happened with surveillance--
JOHN DICKERSON: Difficulties how?
PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP: -- and I thought that -- well, you saw what happened with surveillance. And I think that was inappropriate, but that's the way--
JOHN DICKERSON: What does that mean, sir?
PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP: You can figure that out yourself.
JOHN DICKERSON: Well, I-- the reason I ask is you said he was-- you called him "sick and bad".
PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP: Look, you can figure it out yourself. He was very nice to me with words, but-- and when I was with him -- but after that, there has been no relationship.
JOHN DICKERSON: But you stand by that claim about him?
PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP: I don't stand by anything. I just-- you can take it the way you want. I think our side's been proven very strongly. And everybody's talking about it. And frankly it should be discussed. I think that is a very big surveillance of our citizens. I think it's a very big topic. And it's a topic that should be number one. And we should find out what the hell is going on.
JOHN DICKERSON: I just wanted to find out, though. You're-- you're the president of the United States. You said he was "sick and bad" because he had tapped you-- I'm just--
PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP: You can take-- any way. You can take it any way you want.
JOHN DICKERSON: But I'm asking you. Because you don't want it to be--
JOHN DICKERSON: --fake news. I want to hear it from--
PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP: You don't have to--
JOHN DICKERSON: --President Trump.
PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP: --ask me.  You don't have to ask me.
PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP: Because I have my own opinions. You can have your own opinions.
JOHN DICKERSON: But I want to know your opinions. You're the president of the United States.
PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP: Okay, it's enough. Thank you. Thank you very much.
