No Wars Without Congressional Approval!

Body

Trump has appointed hard-liner, war monger John Bolton as the National Security Advisor.

Congress has given up its proper role in authorizing wars. With Bolton whispering in his ear, Trump will look to pull out of the Iran nuclear treaty and even possibly bomb North Korea, exploiting the broad authority Congress gave the executive branch to protect this country right after 9-11—the 2001 Authorization for Use of Military Force (AUMF). The AUMF has no time limits, no geographic constraints, and no exit strategy. It has become a blank check for any President, at any time, to wage war without Congressional oversight. Congress can and must reassert its proper authority so Trump can’t start a war merely to distract from his wrong-doings.
