US House votes to reduce President Trump War Powers against Iran

The US house on Thursday voted to restrict President Trump future military action against Iran, as lawmakers sought to claw back congressional war powers from the White House.

The resolution was introduced by Democrats after Trump’s order to kill an Iranian commander and retaliatory missile strikes by the Islamic republic dramatically escalated tensions and raised fears of a war between the two foes.

The vote, 224 to 194, was largely along party lines, although three members of Trump’s Republican Party joined Democrats in approving the measure that demands the president not engage in military action against Iran unless authorized by Congress.
