Minnesota Leaders Call on Trump to Consult Congress on Syria
MINNEAPOLIS (AP) -- Members of Minnesota's congressional delegation from both
parties mostly support President Donald's decision to launch a missile strike
against Syria in response to this week's chemical attack.
But they're insisting that the president needs to consult with Congress before any escalation of the conflict.
Democratic Sen. Amy Klobuchar says it was right to show Syrian President Bashar
Assad that he will be held accountable.
Republican Rep. Jason Lewis says the U.S. should continue its efforts toward
resolving the conflict.
Democratic Rep. Betty McCollum called on GOP House Speaker Paul Ryan recall the
House from its recess to set clear limits on the use of U.S. troops.
Democratic Rep. Keith Ellison sharply criticized the president for failing to
seek authorization in the absence of an imminent threat to the U.S.
