Americans say Soleimani's assassination made US less safe, Trump 'reckless' on Iran: Poll
The vast majority of Americans say the US assassination of Iranian Lieutenant General Qassem Soleimani has made America less safe and shows that President Donald Trump's behavior with Iran is "reckless," according to a new poll.
The USA Today/Ipsos poll found that Americans, by 55%-24%, said they believe the assassination has made the United States less safe, rejecting a fundamental argument the Trump administration has made.
The US House of Representatives passed a resolution on Thursday to stop Trump from further military action against Iran, rebuking the president days after he ordered the strike that martyred Lt. Gen. Soleimani and escalated tensions in the region.
The Democratic-controlled House voted 224-194, mostly along party lines, sending the war powers resolution to the Senate. The fate of the resolution is uncertain in the Senate, where Trump’s fellow Republicans hold 53 of the chamber’s 100 seats,
If passed by the House and Senate, the measure does not need Trump’s signature to go into effect.
