The U.S. Senate has deprived the trump unauthorized authority to wage war against Iran
The upper house of Congress – the Senate – voted to strip the President of Donald trump right to arbitrarily make decisions about military action against Iran. This publication reports The Hill.
The resolution, initiated by Senator Tim Kane, voted 55 parliamentarians, against – 45. The decision to limit the powers trump the issue of military action was supported by eight Republicans and all 47 Democrats in the Senate.
Senators of the Republican party, which supported the resolution, connect this norm is not with the personality of trump, but rather with the return of its war powers that Congress gave the Executive power in recent decades.
“It’s not the presidency. …It really concerns the proper distribution of powers between the three branches of government. Congress has ceased to play a leading role in the issue of a Declaration of war”, – explained the decision of the Senate Republican Congressman Mike Lee.
The document orders that trump terminated the participation of all American troops in operations against Iran within 30 days if he does not get the approval of Congress for military action.
We will remind, in January the House of representatives of the United States Congress adopted a resolution which imposes restrictions on the powers of the President of Donald trump on the conduct of military action against Iran.
This decision was taken in connection with the aggravation of the situation in the middle East after 3 January in Iraq, by order of the President of the United States Donald trump, was killed by General Qassem Soleimani.
