It’s great to see Sarah Sanders on Fox News speaking with so much honesty calling out the Democrats.
Sanders spoke out on the war powers resolution:
“I can’t think of anything dumber than allowing Congress to take over our foreign policy … The last thing we want to do is push powers into Congress’ hands and take them away from the president.”

President Trump spoke out on the War Powers Resolution this morning:
“Hope that all House Republicans will vote against Crazy Nancy Pelosi’s War Powers Resolution. Also, remember her “speed & rush” in getting the Impeachment Hoax voted on & done. Well, she never sent the Articles to the Senate. Just another Democrat fraud. Presidential Harassment!”

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:
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!

“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.”
Lindsey Graham said it best: “The last thing America needs is 535 Commanders in Chief.”
I will oppose any War Powers resolution pushed by @SpeakerPelosi so as to allow this President to have the latitude he needs as Commander in Chief.
The last thing America needs is 535 Commanders in Chief. Americans elected one: @realdonaldtrump.
