A tweet posted by a reporter from the New York Times refuted claims that White House press secretary Sean Spicer and National Security Adviser H.R. McMaster issued an apology earlier on Friday to the United Kingdom.
The apology involved the wiretapping accusations President Donald Trump made on March 4, saying that former President Barack Obama wiretapped Trump Tower through a British spy agency during the 2016 campaign, Axios reported on Friday.
Julie Davis tweeted that the White House said "there was no apology to Brits," and Spicer and McMaster "fielded complaints" while defending "Spicer's mention of wiretapping story."
WH now sez there was no apology to Brits from @PressSec /McMaster; they fielded complaints & defended Spicer's mention of wiretapping story

A senior aide said that the apology did not take place.
"He didn’t apologize, no way, no how," the aide said.
