Democratic lawmakers have expressed frustration with the Trump administration’s secrecy in striking Iranian military leader Qassem Soleimani.

President Donald Trump on Sunday tweeted that his social media posts “serve as notification” to Congress that the U.S. will retaliate against any attack from Iran — and the House Foreign Affairs Committee wasn’t having it.

The House Foreign Affairs Committee, which is chaired by New York Democrat Eliot Engel, responded on Twitter: “This Media Post will serve as a reminder that war powers reside in the Congress under the United States Constitution. And that you should read the War Powers Act. And that you’re not a dictator.”
