A sobering thought on Iran, and why it matters for 2020:

Donald Trump and his war hawks have been planning a war against Iran, deploying a carrier strike force and B-52 bombers to the Gulf while looking for a "trigger" to justify an assault.

Less than one week ago, it almost happened before Trump made a last second reversal.

We must not leave the decision to go to war with this bombastic, mercurial man who conducts foreign policy via Twitter.

Our Constitution protected us from this scenario, giving Congress – not the president – the power to go to war.

That is why I'm fighting for the opportunity to debate Iran on the Senate floor — so we can reinforce that Trump does not have authority to launch a war.

And this is exactly why 2020 is critical. We must oust Donald Trump and defeat his enablers in the Senate.

Trump is weighing a campaign in Oregon – considering injecting millions to stop our efforts.
