Democrat leader Nancy Pelosi plans on trying to limit President Trump’s actions in Iran with a War Powers Resolution vote.
The War Powers Resolution is supposed to prevent presidents from using the military without approval from Congress. What Pelosi is forgetting is that Clinton acted in Kosovo and Obama in Libya without approval from Congress.
Pelosi wrote in a letter to Democrats:
“This week, the House will introduce and vote on a War Powers Resolution to limit the President’s military actions regarding Iran. It reasserts Congress’s long-established oversight responsibilities by mandating that if no further Congressional action is taken, the Administration’s military hostilities with regard to Iran cease within 30 days.”
Democrats have been going ballistic since President Trump took out a known terrorist who had been killing American military members for decades! The Democrats were unhappy that they weren’t notified before the airstrike that killed Soleimani.
Also, Democrats have been fear-mongering since the airstrike. They’ve been claiming we’re heading for World War III. In contrast, a fearless President Trump has been keeping the heat on Iran but Pelosi wants Trump to “apologize” to her “good friends” the Iranians. Someone needs to tell her she’s NOT the POTUS!
Pelosi announced she would limit President Trump’s actions on Iran with a “War Powers Resolution” vote in the House but there’s one big problem with Pelosi’s plan…It will have to pass in the Senate!
President Trump tweeted to set the record straight:
“Legal notice is not required” to take additional action on Iran. Trump claimed that his tweets provide notification to Congress that he “will quickly & fully strike back, & perhaps in a disproportionate manner” if Iran attacks “any U.S. person or target.”
These Media Posts will serve as notification to the United States Congress that should Iran strike any U.S. person or target, the United States will quickly & fully strike back, & perhaps in a disproportionate manner. Such legal notice is not required, but is given nevertheless!
