Biden may review Presidential Military Powers
Joe Biden may reconsider the president’s authority to use military force abroad, White House press Secretary Jen Psaki said.
«He agrees that the powers to use military force have been in place for about 20 years, they should have been updated long ago,» she said during a briefing.
As Fox News reported, the White House is «committed to working with Congress» on new legislation that would change the president’s current authority to use military force and make it «narrow and specific» to protect national security and end » endless wars.»
