New Jersey Democrats in Strong Position to Flip GOP Districts

House to Vote This Year on Individual Tax Cut Extension, Ryan Says New Jersey Democrats in Strong Position to Flip GOP Districts
Patty Aguilar | 17 April, 2018, 04:28

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., said, "A pinpointed, limited action to punish and hopefully deter Assad from doing this again is appropriate, but the administration has to be careful about not getting us into a greater and more involved war in Syria".

And Kentucky congressman Thomas Massie ran through a list of questions that had been raised by Trump's action, including "can he strike China, Russia or Britain under the same authority" and "can he bomb Assad's living quarters".

Under the US Constitution, the President can not declare war without the approval of Congress. However, she said Trump must present a more comprehensive strategy on Syria to Congress and seek lawmakers' approval.

The US' joint military action with France and the United Kingdom came as a response to a chemical weapons attack against civilians by Syrian leader Bashar al-Assad. The next speaker of the House must reclaim congressional war powers as prescribed in Article I of the Constitution.

Earlier this week, Ryan had downplayed the need for Trump to seek additional congressional approval, arguing that the President had the authority to approve an attack under the current Authorization for Use of Military Force, passed in 2002 and used as a basis for military action in the broader U.S. fight against terrorism in the years since.

Trump announced the airstrikes against Syria in an address to the nation on Friday night, saying the goal was "to establish a strong deterrent against the production, spread and use of chemical weapons". Go to Congress, @realDonaldTrump.

But Trump has made statements on the USA role in Syria, which is gripped by a brutal seven-year civil war estimated to have killed upwards of 500,000 people and displaced millions, which has at times conflicted with administration officials.

And Arizona senator John McCain added: 'I applaud the President for taking military action against the Assad regime, and I am grateful to our British and French allies for joining us in this action. Bill Nelson, D-Fla., who faces a tough re-election fight against Florida's Republican Gov. Rick Scott, and who backed Trump's response to Syria, tweeting, "I support the attack because Assad must be held accountable for the use of chemical weapons".

Sen. Tim Kaine, a Virginia Democrat, went as far as to say Trump's actions were "illegal". Trump earlier this month expressed his desire to get USA troops out of Syria, but then agreed to keep troops there in a decision that a senior administration official characterized as reluctant. We need to stop giving presidents a blank check to wage war.

'Today it's Syria, but what's going to stop him from bombing Iran or North Korea next?' Kaine said in a tweet.
