The Republican-held Senate seemed like they had Trump’s back when they acquitted him of all impeachment charges.
But they just stabbed him in the back.
And Trump’s days in office may be over. Here’s how his party turned on him.
After the radical left’s impeachment witch hunt was shot down in the Senate, it seemed as if the Republican party had never been so united.
They all rallied behind their commander in chief against the left’s corruption.
But now, it seems as if that was all a lie.
The Republican party just turned on Donald Trump, and it looks like his days in the oval office may be over.
Earlier this week, House Democrats proposed a resolution to limit the President’s authority to take military action in Iran, without first getting congressional approval.
This is an unconstitutional act that takes away the President’s position as commander in chief of the United States’ military forces.
With Democrats predicting some of their Republican colleagues will cross the aisle, the Senate is expected to pass a War Powers resolution Thursday to curtail President Donald Trump’s authority to take unilateral military action in Iran.
The move is in response to escalations with the Middle Eastern country that occurred last month, including the U.S. killing one of Iran’s top military generals and the subsequent retaliation that ensued.
This move is yet another move by the Democrats to try and take power back from the President. They see themselves as the ultimate authority in Washington, and cannot stand that he is the only thing stopping them from taking control.
Senator Tim Kaine (D-VA), is the author of this resolution.
The legislation is privileged because it invokes the War Powers Act, meaning Kaine can force a vote despite opposition from Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.), who labeled the resolution “blunt and clumsy” on Tuesday. Votes will occur Thursday on any amendments offered and final passage of the resolution, which would require Trump seek congressional approval for military action within 30 days or cease any ongoing operations. The Democratic-led House will eventually consider the measure, where it is expected to easily pass.
Many are expecting the President to immediately veto the resolution, but the left hopes that this will damage his chances in the 2020 election.
“Put it on his desk. If he vetoes it, I think the fact of us getting it to him may still influence his thinking as he’s thinking that he’s got an election to face in November,” said Sen. Tim Kaine (D-Va.), the resolution’s author. “We know what Americans think of another war right now, and so does he.”
The President quickly spoke out against this act saying that the resolution:
“Sends a very bad signal. The Democrats are only doing this as an attempt to embarrass the Republican Party,” he continued. “Don’t let it happen!”
This resolution is just another attempt by the left to continue to try and block the President’s every move, but Trump outsmarts them every time.
