Hypocrisy about FISA

So, the FISA court approved the FBI's actions, but Trump thinks that the FBI was up to no good? That means that Trump doesn't believe that the FISA court is engaging in effective oversight, and is really more of an indictment against the court than anything.

Given that, why in the world did Trump sign the extension of the domestic spying law, which rests on the premise that the FISA court can provide adequate protection against abuses from agencies such as the FBI?

Politics, indeed.
