Trump vetoes Iran war powers resolution: Kaine comments

tim kainePresident Trump on Wednesday vetoed Sen. Tim Kaine’s war powers resolution that would prevent further escalation of hostilities with Iran without congressional authorization.

Kaine’s statement on Trump’s move:

“Last year, in President Trump’s State of the Union remarks, he said: ‘Great nations do not fight endless wars.’ But instead of following through on his word, President Trump vetoed legislation that would help avoid unnecessary war in the Middle East. I urge my colleagues to join me in voting to override his veto. Unless there’s a carefully reached consensus in Congress that war is necessary, we should not be sending our troops into harm’s way.”
