President Trump told the Financial Times he doesn't regret his tweets, noting that without the medium he might not be in the position he is now. 

"I don’t regret anything, because there is nothing you can do about it," the president said when asked during an interview with the Financial Times if he regrets any of his tweets. 

"You know if you issue hundreds of tweets, and every once in a while you have a clinker, that’s not so bad."

He pointed to his tweet claiming former President Barack ObamaBarack Hussein Obama'Too Far Left' hashtag trends on Twitter Krystal Ball: Patrick's 2020 bid is particularly 'troublesome' for Warren Deval Patrick: Biden 'misses the moment' in 2020 campaign MORE wiretapped Trump Tower before the election — an unfounded allegation made with no evidence that has since set off a storm and investigations on Capitol Hill. 
 
"Now my last tweet, you know the one that you are talking about perhaps, was the one about being in quotes wire tapped, meaning surveilled," Trump said.
 
"Guess what, it is turning out to be true," he said.
 
Last week, House Intelligence Chairman told the White House and the press that he'd seen documents he said shows Trump's team was incidentally surveilled. A report in The New York Times last week said two White House officials helped Rep. Devin Nunes (R-Calif.) acquire the information.
 
Trump told the Financial Times that he has a large audience between his Facebook, Twitter and Instagram accounts, which lets him bypass the "fake media" to get his message out.
 
He said he is "really liking" the job when asked if he is still enjoying his role as president after three months. 
 
"I’ve enjoyed it," Trump said. "We have done a lot."
 
He went on to tout the progress he has made during his time in the White House, pointing to jobs as one area of success. 
 
"We’re doing great. The jobs: Ford just announced they are doing three major plants, three major expansions, thousands of jobs," he said.
 
"General Motors, Fiat, [a] couple of them off the record because ‘Why do I need this for?’ But a couple of them were going to build in Mexico, now they are building in Michigan. Now they are building in Ohio. We got it going."
