Bernie Sanders coming to Omaha to support Nebraska Democratic Party

Former White House officials are strongly refuting President Donald Trump's stunning allegation that his predecessor Barack Obama wiretapped his phones at Trump Tower ahead of the 2016 election Bernie Sanders coming to Omaha to support Nebraska Democratic Party

"We are honored and excited that DNC Chair Tom Perez and Senator Bernie Sanders plan to visit the great State of Utah in their efforts to strengthen the Democratic Party nationwide and promote our middle-class agenda". The former state senator came within 3 percentage points of winning Tuesday's five-way primary, putting him within striking distance.

Welch said the president must seek approval from Congress to continue using such military force.

Sanders showed why Trump is going to be a big anchor around the necks of the Republican Party in 2018 and beyond.

Mr Trump ordered the launch of 59 cruise missiles at a military target in response to Bashar al-Assad's alleged use of chemical weapons on civilians and the US's first direct attack on the country.

The president ordered the missile strikes against an airstrip in Syria in response to what US officials say was an attack by al- Assad against his own people using chemical weapons.

Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vermont, said Syrian leader Bashar Assad's use of chemical weapons against his own citizens in violation of global conventions and moral standards makes him a war criminal. But, he added, "I would not vote for us getting involved militarily in another war in the Middle East".

This Is What A Syrian Refugee Thinks About Trump's Airstrikes
To make her point, she played a clip in which Hillary Clinton says that the President should be more accepting of refugees. She continued: "At the same time , this is a man who doesn't want Syrians to come to this country with this refugee ban".

"Further, the U.S. must work with all parties to reinforce longstanding worldwide norms against the use of chemical weapons, to hold Russian Federation and Syria to the 2013 deal to destroy these weapons and to see that violators are made accountable".

Welch said the same is true for the House of Representatives. Sanders gave little indication of how he might vote on future air strikes.

Trump had also repeatedly touted his opposition to the US-led wars in the region and vowed never to take a military action against the Syrian government.

"He is a war criminal who will be held accountable for his barbaric actions", Welch said in a statement. "When used it should be in self-defense or part of a larger strategy in conjunction with our global partners, and with the broad support of the American people".

He says the USA must keep in mind that there are grave risks and unintended consequences in the use of military force.
