Trump explains why he didn’t tell Congress about Iran strike

At his first rally of the year, President Trump explained why he didn’t notify Congress of the strike on Iranian general Qasem Soleimani. ’These are split-second decisions. We got a call. We heard where he was. We knew the way he was getting there. And we had to make a decision’, Trump said. He also took a shot at House Intelligence Chairman Adam Schiff calling him a ’big leaker’ to the media.

This is a real stretch for justifying assassinating the Peace Practisioner. No president should engage in these actions on their own, unless it's to prevent imminent threat against American citizens and soil. I am not convinced this is the case here, and neither am I going to assume Orange Man Bad. So far Trump has been squeaky clean, remarkably so. But I wouldn't want to see a repeat of this by Trump or any other president. There needs to be restrictions placed on executive power. Also, Trump was probably correct not to inform Congress this one time; Schiff alone loves to leak, as does almost everyone else in Congress whether they are Republican or Democrat.

Spanky Draftdodger didn't tell anyone because there was no apparent rational reason except to do what he wants and not consult with anyone to get some votes for his personal reasons. The moron is a pathological lying chump who almost started a huge war. Good thing our allies calmed things down for the dotard, because it sure as hell wasn't Pompinoccio or Spanky de-escalating the mistake. This thread is going to be off the chain with Righty's licking taint.....

Probably because he had the perfect opportunity to take out a known terrorist with the blood of thousands on his hands, and if he went to Congress they wouldn’t let him take action. I’m split midway on my opinion on Trump, but something that is true, something I like, is that when action is needed action is taken.
