WASHINGTON (AP) — The Senate approved a bipartisan measure Thursday limiting President Donald Trump’s authority to launch military operations against Iran.

The measure, authored by Sen. Tim Kaine, D-Va., says Trump must win approval from Congress before engaging in further military action against Iran. Eight Republicans joined with Democrats to pass the resolution by a 55-45 vote.

The article goes on to state the following:

Kaine and other supporters said the resolution was not about Trump or even the presidency, but instead was an important reassertion of congressional power to declare war.

OANN anchor Jennifer Franco tweeted that President Trump is expected to veto the measure.

“This is a strong bipartisan message from the Senate that we will uphold our constitutional duty to deliberate and vote before sending our troops into harm’s way,” Sen. Tim Kaine (D) tweeted.

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer declared, “With Senator Kaine’s War Powers Resolution now passed, a bipartisan majority of Senators just sent a clear shot across the bow saying President Trump cannot wage war without Congress’s explicit approval.”

Sen. Rick Scott tweeted, “I voted No on today’s resolution to limit the President’s war powers. While I don’t believe we should be getting into forever wars, I also don’t believe we should be limiting the ability of the President to defend the American people and American military personnel overseas.”

Democrat congresswoman Barbara Lee tweeted, “We can’t afford a reckless, unauthorized, and illegal war with Iran. I’m glad the Senate stood up to Trump’s warmongering and passed the War Powers Resolution – but we need to go further and repeal the 2001 & 2002 AUMFs to #StopEndlessWar!”

Sen. Bernie Sanders said in a Twitter post, “I voted YES. Unlike Trump, today’s bipartisan vote made it clear that a majority of the U.S. Senate believes in our Constitution and the separation of powers. It is Congress, not the president, who has the power to take this country into war, and that’s what this vote was about.”
