Tell Congress: Block Trump from starting a war with North Korea

To be delivered to The United States House of Representatives and The United States Senate

Petition Statement

Donald Trump’s reckless rhetoric is moving us closer and closer to war with North Korea, a war that could kill millions and threaten global peace and security. Only Congress has the power to authorize such a war, but Donald Trump has shown he can’t be trusted when it comes to launching unauthorized wars. Please support legislation that prohibits the president from spending any funds to start a preemptive war with North Korea.

Petition Background

Tweet by tweet and threat by threat, Donald Trump is inching toward war with North Korea. It’s not just a few belligerent comments. For months, top Trump officials have been floating the possibility of an illegal and unconstitutional first strike on North Korea. We need to prepare for a future where Trump tries to attack North Korea, and we need to do it fast.

In the words of Trump’s own Defense Secretary, war on the Korean peninsula would be catastrophic. New official studies find that hundreds of thousands and even millions of South Koreans would die in a conflict on the Korean peninsula. That is to say nothing of the long-term consequences that war would bring to global peace and security.

Congress is currently considering bills that block Donald Trump from starting a war with North Korea all by himself. Specifically, the legislation blocks any funds for an unprovoked attack on North Korea or other military action that’s not expressly authorized by Congress. This important legislation wouldn’t do anything to change the President’s constitutional right to defend our country if we’re attacked. Instead, it would simply make clear that Donald Trump cannot start a war, just because he wants to.

Urge your Members of Congress to support these bills to stand between Trump and a reckless war on the Korean peninsula.
