US Senate to Vote on Curbing Trump's Iran War Powers
Thursday, 13 February 2020 17:21 WIB | GLOBAL |Global

The U.S. Senate is scheduled to vote Thursday on a resolution calling for President Donald Trump to "terminate the use of U.S. Armed Forces for hostilities against Iran" unless those actions are authorized by Congress.

Trump rejects the measure, arguing it would be dangerous to limit his war-making power, and ahead of the vote he urged the Republican-majority Senate to oppose it.

"It is very important for our Country's SECURITY that the United States Senate not vote for the Iran War Powers Resolution, Trump said on Twitter. œWe are doing very well with Iran and this is not the time to show weakness.

Trump tweeted, œAmericans overwhelmingly support our attack on Iranian Gen. Qassem Soleimani, killed in a Trump-ordered drone strike last month at the Baghdad airport.

After considering several amendments to the non-binding resolution, senators will vote on the resolution with the possibility that five Republicans will join the 47 Democrats in the 100-member chamber to approve the measure. It is almost certain to face a Trump veto, with the supporters of the resolution unlikely to be able to muster a two-thirds vote to override it.
