Article 1 of our Constitution grants Congress, and Congress alone, the right to declare war. The President's right to prosecute a war comes only after Congress acts. While it's true that Congress has been ignoring this obligation since the last World War, Presidents have in the recent past gone to Congress for an authorization to use force. Not Donald.
Donald Trump is playing chicken with N. Korea, risking the possibility of a nuclear war (but they can't hit us, right? only Tokyo and Seoul?) that might kill millions without even consulting the appropriate Congressional committees.
Meanwhile, the Chief Lapdogs, Ryan and Mitchell, have yet to open their cowardly mouths.
