As the President was meeting with Pope Francis at the Vatican, the first term Republican senator from Kentucky, who is one of Obama’s biggest critics over NSA surveillance activities, jokingly offered the President a suggestion on what he should say to the pontiff.
Paul’s tweet came two days after the President and congressional leaders outlined proposals for ending the NSA’s sweeping collection of bulk telephone records, in hopes of ending concerns over how the federal government keeps records known as metadata.
