“It never hurts to say you’re sorry,” Hurd told ABC’s “This Week.”
When pressed on whether Trump should apologize to Obama, Hurd said, “I think so. I think it helps with our allies. We got to make sure that we’re all working together.”
“It’s not just sorry to the president, but also to the U.K. for the claims or the intimation that the U.K. was involved in this as well,” said.
White House press secretary Sean Spicer last week repeated claims made by a Fox News analyst who accused Britain's GCHQ intelligence agency of aiding Obama in wiretapping Trump Tower.
Trump earlier this month accused Obama of wiretapping Trump Tower before the November election. Obama, through a spokesperson, denied that he or any White House official ordered surveillance.
