We should not be at war with Ron and was votes to authorize such a war, while the president does and must always have the ability to defend United States from imminent attack the executive power to initiate War stops. Their only Congress can declare war. The Democrats are looking to reassert this Congressional Authority and their efforts to block Trump from going to war with Iran and their War Powers.

It would make the US look weak many of his staunch Republican allies are against it as well. Son Republican Senators do support it. We want to make sure that any military action that needs to be authorized is in fact authorized properly by Congress. That doesn’t show weakness that shows strength is Senate.
Resolution was introduced shortly after Trump ordered a drone strike that killed a Ron’s top military commander, cost him so limani Terrence retaliatory missile strikes on a rocky military bases, housing US troops dramatically escalated tensions and nearly brought the two countries to the brink of War.8 Republican senators crossed the aisle to vote with Democrats to pass legislation to limit President Trump’s ability to wage war against Iran.
