Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) said on Friday “it’s a mistake” to question whether President Obama loves America, CNN reported.
Paul’s comments to radio station WAVE came just hours after an adviser told TPM that the potential 2016 candidate had no comment on the issue.
In the interview with WAVE, Paul criticized former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani (R) for doubting the President’s love of country.
“I think it’s a mistake to question people’s motives,” Paul said. “It’s one thing to disagree on policy.”
“I try not to question the president’s motives as being a good American or a bad American,” Paul continued. “I’ve challenged his policies. I’ve disagreed with him completely on the war in Libya. I blame him and Hillary [Clinton] for something that made us less safe because of the war in Libya. But I don’t question whether or not he was well-intentioned.”
