    Senate Tries to Curb Trump's War Powers

    They're not looking for a fight. In a bipartisan rebuke, the Senate voted 55-45 yesterday to force President Trump to seek congressional approval before attacking Iran. The move followed last month's controversial U.S. airstrike that killed top Iranian military leader Gen. Qassem Soleimani. Still, Trump will likely veto the measure — while the Senate doesn't have the supermajority to override him.

    So why does it matter? Some, such as Democratic Sen. Tim Kaine, believe it could make Trump think twice before confronting a foreign power like Tehran during an election year.
