Schumer: Trump does not have the authority to go to war with Iran without Congress’ permission

UNITED STATES (OBSERVATORY NEWS) — US Senate Democrat leader Chuck Schumer said on Friday that President Donald Trump has no authority to go to war with Iran without congressional permission, adding that Trump should have consulted with top congressional leaders before the United States killed an Iranian military leader Great.

“I see that the president does not have the authority to go to war with Iran,” Schumer said in the Senate Chamber.

“If he plans a significant increase in the number of troops and plans for possible long-term hostilities, the administration will need the approval of Congress and the consent of the American people.”
