President Trump on Monday slammed the media for being “rude” to his representatives.

"It is amazing how rude much of the media is to my very hard working representatives," he tweeted. "Be nice, you will do much better!"

Trump’s senior counselor, Kellyanne Conway, made multiple appearances before his tweet on Monday morning to defend her recent surveillance claims.

On ABC’s “Good Morning America,” Conway said she had “no evidence” that Trump Tower was monitored “in any number of ways,” as she suggested in an interview with a newspaper in New Jersey. She instead insisted she was discussing “surveilling generally.”
