Trump Hating House Dems Want To Take Away Presidential Power
The House Dems are at it again attacking Trump. This time they are angry that Trump did not consult with them before going after Soleimani. They feel he put everyone in danger by taking out Soleimani. I guess House Dems are against killing terrorists now?
"Speaker Nancy Pelosi announced plans for the House to vote Thursday on a War Powers Resolution that aims to limit President Trump’s military action toward Iran, saying Democrats have “serious, urgent concerns about the administration’s decision to engage in hostilities against Iran and about its lack of strategy moving forward.”
The Democrat-authored resolution would reassert congressional authority and rebuke Trump’s decision to take out Iran’s top general without their consent. Pelosi said the resolution will go to the House Rules Committee on Wednesday and will be brought to the floor for a vote Thursday.
“Last week, the Trump administration conducted a provocative and disproportionate military airstrike targeting high-level Iranian military officials,” Pelosi said. “The administration took this action without consulting Congress. This action endangered our service members, diplomats and others by risking a serious escalation of tensions with Iran.”
Fox News obtained the text of the resolution the House is prepping for debate on the floor. The resolution “requires the president to consult with Congress ‘in every possible instance' before introducing the United States Armed Forces into hostilities."
"The measure also appears to handcuff Trump when it comes to future strikes. The resolution says “Congress has not authorized the president to use military force against Iran.” The measure also “directs the president to terminate the use of United States Armed Forces to engage in hostilities in or against Iran or any part of its government or military” unless there is a specific blessing by Congress.
In other words, the plan would have specifically forbidden the drone strike ordered last week that killed Gen. Qassem Soleimani."
"Republican leadership aides argued to Fox News that this War Powers Resolution is “toothless,” saying it has “NO chance of becoming law.” They noted how it is a “concurrent” resolution – [a legislative maneuver that is] not submitted to the president and do not have the force of law."
These House Dems are just relentless. They have been going after Trump since he entered office. Trump defended America as he is supposed to. The House Dems are likely just angry that he is standing up for America. They fail to realize that there is more than one way to keep the peace and sometimes foreign countries need "the stick" to be reminded not to mess with us.
