Trump Might End Practice of People Listening in on Presidents’ Calls

Trump urges senators not to pass Iran war resolution

But in floor remarks Thursday, Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer addressed criticism of the resolution, saying it was not an attempt to embarrass Trump.

"The authority to use military force has always been the responsibility of Congress, not one individual".

Two-thirds votes in the House and GOP-run Senate would be needed to override an expected Trump veto.

Trump's misappropriation of funds in defiance of Congress, for the second year in a row, is an egregious violation of constitutional limits on the presidency, which include giving Congress, not the executive branch, the authority to appropriate funds-the so-called "power of the purse". "This should not be a controversial proposition", Kaine said in a speech on the Senate floor.

The House has already voted on a similar resolution, passing it with bipartisan votes in the wake of the administration's targeted killing last month in Iraq with a US drone of Tehran's top military commander, Qassem Soleimani.

Former White House chief of staff John Kelly laid bare an array of misgivings Wednesday night about President Donald Trump's policies and actions, including his ouster of Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman, the former National Security Council aide and impeachment witness.

Last year, the House and Senate approved a War Powers resolution to block any USA military support for the Saudi-led coalition fighting in Yemen's civil war.

Raju requested Collins two times extra what courses she thinks Trump has realized ahead of she close the door in his face.

Speaking to students and guests at Drew University in New Jersey on Wednesday night, Kelly said that Vindman was just doing his job in reporting "an illegal order", migrants are "overwhelmingly good people" and "not all rapists", and Trump's decision to condition military aid to Ukraine on an investigation into his political rival disrupted longstanding us policy. If my hands were tied, Iran would have a field day. Send a very bad signal. "Don't let it happen!".

Never miss the latest news from the Star. Trump said, referring to the recent attack that killed Iranian military leader Qassem Soleimani.

The Constitution gives Congress, not the president, the power to declare war.

Kaine has long pushed for action reasserting congressional power to declare war.

The bill was passed after the US Navy declared that it had seized weapons thought to be of Iran "design and manufacture" from Iranian dhow in the Arabian Sea.

Where I was raised in the small coal-mining town of Farmington, West Virginia, people did not believe they were better than someone else and could act with total disregard for the wellbeing of their neighbor if it was in their own self-interest.

Like the Yemen vote, Kaine's effort will expose long-standing foreign policy divisions within the Republican Party.

The views of Paul and Young run counter to those expressed by Senate GOP leaders, who have long supported giving the commander-in-chief wide latitude to order military operations overseas.

Lee said the measure focuses on an imbalance of power that has given way to the presidency. "This is one that is neither conservative or liberal, it is neither Democratic or Republican ... this is neither hawkish or dovish".
