This is as an aftermath of a strike that killed Iranian military commanders followed by Iran’s vengeance last month resulted in a vaster fear of war.
According to Senator Tim Kaine, who authored the clause, and other supporters, “The resolution was not about Trump or even the presidency, but instead was an important reassertion of congressional power to declare war.”
Presidents “must always have the ability to defend the United States from imminent attack, the executive power to initiate war stops there”, Kaine said. “An offensive war requires a congressional debate and vote.”
