As Trump Threatens Syria, U.S.-Russian Relations Deteriorate

Vermont independent Senator Bernie Sanders has warned the White House against any attack on Syria without a declaration of war from Congress. On Wednesday, Sanders tweeted, “President Trump has no legal authority for broadening the war in Syria. It is Congress, not the president, who determines whether our country goes to war, and Congress must not abdicate that responsibility.” DN! speaks to Trita Parsi of the National Iranian American Council and The Intercept’s Zaid Jilani, who co-wrote, with Glenn Greenwald, the piece “With Latest Syria Threats, Trump Continues to Be More Confrontational Toward Russia Than Obama Was.”
