The U.S. Senate on Thursday backed legislation to limit President Donald Trump's ability to wage war against Iran, rebuking the president after a strike against a top Iranian general and Tehran's retaliation last month raised fears of broader regional conflict.
As voting continued, the vote was 51-44 for the war powers resolution, which would require Trump to remove U.S. troops engaged in hostilities against Iran unless Congress declares war or passes a specific authorization for the use of military force.
Trump has promised a veto.
