The President HAS THE POWER to take military action WITHOUT pre-approval of Congress, under the War Powers Act of 1973. The War Powers Resolution calls for the President to notify Congress within 48 hours of military action and forbids US armed forces from remaining for more than 60 days, without a Congressional authorization for use of military force, or a declaration of war by the United States.
That’s for ANY president taking military action. In this case, the president may not need to inform Congress as this military action took place in a “military theater “of Iraq, where the use of military force had already been authorized by the US Congress under President GW Bush.
President Obama also used military force, frequently using drones to attack our enemies, and never sought prior authorization from Congress. I don’t think he had to… I don’t think any president has to.
I'm just sayin'... The Deep State prostitutes in Washington are crying this morning because President Trump didn't tell them of his plans to take out another terrorist... like they try to impede this President EVERY time he does something. The #DeepState HATES the fact that there is a Commander In Chief they cannot control and rent to other countries in the world for money and power in return.
Have you noticed how many top=level terrorists are dying lately since President Trump STOPPED telling Democrats what he's doing?
I don't believe in coincidence.
