“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.
