Meanwhile, congressional Democrats are pushing legislation that would prevent President Trump from launching a preemptive strike against North Korea. The “No Unconstitutional Strike Against North Korea” bill would bar Trump from ordering an attack on North Korea without first seeking congressional authority. The bill comes amid mounting tensions between the U.S. and North Korea, with President Trump repeatedly threatening to “totally destroy” all of North Korea—a country of 25 million people.
