Tell Congress: Stop Trump from ordering a nuclear first strike without a Congressional declaration of war.

American democracy was designed to operate under a system of checks and balances. Yet today, the President has the unilateral authority to order a first strike with nuclear weapons.

Donald Trump's irresponsible threats and taunts show us that he can't be trusted with this power. Congress should prohibit the President from launching a cataclysmic nuclear first-strike without a declaration of war from Congress.

Sign the petition to tell Congress: Pass the Restricting First Use of Nuclear Weapons Act!
