Washington, February 14 (RHC)-- The U.S. Senate has voted 55 to 45 to pass a resolution limiting President Donald Trump’s authority to attack Iran without congressional approval.
The vote comes over a month after Trump ordered the targeted assassination of Iranian General Qassem Soleimani at the Baghdad International Airport, sparking a crisis that brought Iran and the U.S. to the brink of outright war.
Regarding the vote, Illinois Democratic Senator Tammy Duckworth told reporters: “It’s been five weeks since President Trump stomped on the Constitution, circumvented Congress and launched a strike that killed General Soleimani. I will tell you that that decision put everyday Americans at greater risk, because he did not have a good plan for how to react to the aftermath of the war.”
