A WAR IN THE MIDDLE OF A PANDEMIC??? TELL SEN. GRASSLEY TO DO HIS JOB: STOP TRUMP FROM TAKING US TO WAR WITH IRAN

On Wednesday, April 22, 2020, President Trump tweeted, “I have instructed the United States Navy to shoot down and destroy any and all Iranian gunboats if they harass our ships at sea.” Provoking a war in the middle of a pandemic?!?! Immediate action must be taken to impose constitutional restraints on Trump’s inclinations to endanger the Middle East and the entire world.  

On February 13, the Senate passed an Iran War Powers resolution with a vote of 55-45 but Senator Chuck Grassley, the president pro tempore has been dragging his feet on bringing the bill to the president's desk. Tell him to do his job and move the bill along to the next stage already! 

U.S. residents, fill out this form to contact Sen. Grassley and tell him to do his job.

Dear Senator Chuck Grassley,

This is urgent. On Wednesday, April 22, 2020, President Trump tweeted, “I have instructed the United States Navy to shoot down and destroy any and all Iranian gunboats if they harass our ships at sea.” Provoking a war in the middle of a pandemic?!?! Immediate action must be taken to impose constitutional restraints on Trump’s inclinations to endanger the Middle East and the entire world.

The assassination of General Qassim Soleimani—a man who had a popularity rating in Iran of over 80% because of his successful fight against ISIS- and U.S. airstrikes in Iraq before that brought us to the brink of war at the start of 2020. Now with Trump threatening Iran on Twitter as a way to distract from his gross negligence in handling the COVID-19 pandemic, we are heading to that brink again. Poll after poll in the U.S. states clearly that the American people do not want to be dragged into another war in the Middle East.

On February 13, the Senate passed an Iran War Powers resolution to prohibit Trump from using military action against Iran without congressional approval with bipartisan support and a vote of 55-45. On March 11, a companion bill passed in the House. However, you have dragged your feet at getting the bill to the necessary next stage. As president pro tempore, this is your job. As a person who is deeply worried about the possibility of a war with Iran — in the middle of a pandemic — I am calling on you to do your job. Move the Iran War Powers Resolution to President Trump’s desk already.

Sincerely,

Comments

    This is not just about the current occupant of the White House. It will send a message that is desperately needed to all future intemperate presidents of any and all parties.
