Good episode? Give it some love!
From Korea, Vietnam, Kosovo to the War on Terror, Presidents have gathered more and more authority to start and conduct wars on their own. In a “War Powers Edition” of Truth Politics and Power, Host Neal Conan asks how the commander in chief acquired that authority, why Congress has surrendered its constitutional role and whether there are any checks and balances on President Trump’s ability to launch a nuclear first strike on North Korea.
