Listen: President, Congress And David Cicilline discussed on Thom Hartmann
"Today I don't think that Republican administrations the trump administration or the public can see us a call we have power but they don't fear us a call and we reduced our wrestling with them I would guess just with the Republicans all I wanted to call about certain that. this morning I was watching the first twenty four and there was a senator from Texas said that trump only got permission to go to war with Iraq did he have permission from Congress right now. over I don't know what that senator said but he does not have permission you do have to go to Congress by article one section eight of the constitution not that he or other presidents have followed that ever since the very loose authorization going to war after nine eleven which is something we're trying to change but no he does not unless we are attacked are there certain provisions we we do not he does not have unilateral thirty to go to war. let's let's hope. yeah in Rochester New York you're on the air of cars and focus. harassment. you are playing. hold on. yes I do. well it's time for our goal all rain leering at their dirty work grace. he should be all about it well working camp.
