Section 702 of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA), which the Senate voted to renew with a few small tweaks this week, allows the U.S.to spy on foreigners overseas.
In a statement, Trump said it allows the Intelligence Community, under a robust regime of oversight by all three branches of Government, to collect critical intelligence on global terrorists, weapons proliferators, and other important foreign intelligence targets located outside the US.
Supporters of the surveillance program have repeatedly complained that issues such as unmasking have been conflated with Section 702.

The provision "is the single most effective tool that we have to assure the American people that we're doing everything we can to provide their safety", Intelligence Chairman Richard Burr, a North Carolina Republican, said on the Senate floor before the vote.
But as the bill made its way to Trump's desk Friday, House Intelligence Committee Republicans produced a four-page memo that had some saying it was evidence the Federal Bureau of Investigation obtained a FISA warrant to spy on Trump during the campaign. The ACLU said Trump's tweet saying the law he signed was different from the one "so wrongly abused" before was not accurate.
