Some Democrats in Congress are raising questions about President Trump's decision to kill the Iranian general who headed an elite military force. The Pentagon announced Thursday night that an airstrike targeted Iranian General Qassem Soleimani, said to be behind the deaths of hundreds of Americans. Connecticut Senator Chris Murphy said there's no question that Soleimani was an enemy of the U.S. Murphy tweeted, "The question is this - as reports suggest, did America just assassinate, without any congressional authorization, the second most powerful person in Iran, knowingly setting off a potential massive regional war?"
Democratic Congresswoman Ilhan Omar of Minnesota followed up Murphy's comment by tweeting, "So what if Trump wants war, knows this leads to war and needs the distraction? Real question is, will those with congressional authority step in and stop him? I know I will."
