The president in an early morning tweet labeled the proposal as “Crazy Nancy PelosiNancy PelosiPelosi: Trump should accept election results 'like a man' The spectre of pension failures haunts this election Microsoft: Iranian hacking group targeting attendees of major international security conferences MORE’s War Powers Resolution."

In his post, he also mentioned the "Impeachment Hoax," and reminded his followers that Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) hasn’t sent the House-passed impeachment articles against him to the Senate. 


“Just another Democrat fraud,” he said. “Presidential Harassment!”

Pelosi announced Wednesday that the House will vote Thursday on a resolution to limit the president’s ability to authorize military action in Iran without congressional consent. The Speaker’s statement came after Trump approved of a U.S. strike in Iraq without congressional approval that killed Iranian Gen. Qassem Soleimani.


Iran has responded to the killing by threatening retaliation and took responsibility for missile attacks on Iraqi bases housing U.S. military personnel on Wednesday.

The senators said the officials told them that supporting the war powers resolution would “embolden Iran.”

The House passed two articles of impeachment last month, but the Senate is waiting for Pelosi to transfer them to the upper chamber to start a trial. She has said she is withholding them until she gets clarity on how the Senate trial will be run.
