The Senate passed a resolution that restricts military powers of the US President for military action against Iran.
The decision was supported by eight Republicans and all 47 Democrats in the US Senate. In General, the resolution of Democrat Tim Kane has the support of 55 legislators, the remaining 45 voted against it. The document requires trump to withdraw any forces from positions against Iran within 30 days, if Congress does not approve military action against the country.
Republican senators who supported the resolution, noted that it is not about the restriction for trump, and about the return of the powers of Congress, which he handed over Executive power in recent decades.
“It’s important to acknowledge the role of the legislative branch regardless of what representative of the party bosses in the White house,” the Senator from the Republican party, Susan Collins.
