"We are united in our resolve that Assad's barbaric use of chemical weapons can not go unanswered".
The decision led to a chorus of disapproval from senior Democrats - with some pointing out that striking Syria without the approval of Congress was exactly what Trump himself warned Obama against in 2013.
House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., said in a statement that the Syrian regime's chemical weapons attack was a "brutally inhumane war crime that demands a strong, smart and calculated response".
Sen. Tim Kaine, a Virginia Democrat, went as far as to say Trump's actions were "illegal". We also can not allow an unhinged (or hinged) President to unilaterally take America to war. Trump earlier this month expressed his desire to get US troops out of Syria, but then agreed to keep troops there in a decision that a senior administration official characterized as reluctant.
"The United States has taken decisive action in coordination with our allies", said Speaker Paul Ryan, R-Wis., who said at his weekly news conference Thursday that he believed that Trump had authority to act against Syria with any new congressional approval. "Today, it's a strike on Syria - what's going to stop him from bombing Iran or North Korea next? 'I just can't wait to be king!"
As questions swirled this week around how Trump would respond to the attack, so did continued uncertainty about updates to Congress' Authorizations for Use of Military Force.
Pennsylvania Senator Bob Casey tweeted: 'While Bashar al-Assad must be held accountable for his unlawful use of chemical weapons against civilians, the strikes that are being carried out are being done without an authorization from Congress, which is unacceptable'. So, in an astonishing flip, Klarman, at one point New England's most generous donor to Republicans, is taking his money elsewhere: He's heaping cash on Democrats.
'To succeed in the long run, we need a comprehensive strategy for Syria and the entire region'. "The last thing Congress should be doing is giving this president a blank check to wage war against anyone, anywhere".
But as Commander In Chief he can still send troops into an armed conflict without an official war declaration.
