Rand Paul: Trump needs Congress to authorize military action in Syria

Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) said Thursday night that President Trump needs congressional authorization for military action in Syria after Trump ordered an airstrike in retaliation for a deadly chemical attack earlier this week.

"While we all condemn the atrocities in Syria, the United States was not attacked," Paul said in a statement shortly after reports that the U.S. had launched more than 50 Tomahawk cruise missiles against an airfield in Syria.

"The President needs congressional authorization for military action as required by the Constitution, and I call on him to come to Congress for a proper debate," Paul said. "Our prior interventions in this region have done nothing to make us safer, and Syria will be no different."

This is what I was talking about.

While Democrats are muddying the water with the "Russian connection" and judicial filibusters, President Trump just ordered attacks on another soveign nation
without Congressional authorization.

Why is this legal? Well, part of it is because of Bush the Younger and Obama. They too launched military strikes without Congressional approval.

All the nonsense that is being thrown at Trump, and when he does do something that is morally wrong, no one cares.

It gets lost in the noise.

Hey Democrats, you own that one too.
