Senate rebukes Trump, votes to limit Iran war making ability

Patricia Zengerle

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The U.S. Senate passed legislation on Thursday to limit President Donald Trump’s ability to wage war against Iran, rebuking him weeks after a strike against an Iranian military commander and Tehran’s retaliation raised fears of broader regional conflict.

Eight of Trump’s fellow Republicans joined Democrats to pass the war powers resolution by 55-45. The measure would require Trump to remove U.S. troops engaged in hostilities against Iran unless Congress declares war or passes a specific authorization for the use of military force.

I can get Nancy Pelosi as many votes as she wants in order for her to be Speaker of the House. She deserves this victory, she has earned it - but there are those in her party who are trying to take it away. She will win! @TomReedCongress

Eight more enemies for Trump.  I read someone suggesting a third term for Trump.  His AG is scolding him.  Republican Senate doesn't even trust him.

Uhm, the president can veto this legislation, and without a 2/3rds majority it's still just hot air.
If all I want is a warm feeling, I should just wet my pants.

Our legislative branch is neutered.  Even with stuff they agree on they can't actually pass crap.  Just make Trump King already.
