On FPF #182, I discuss a new AUMF that has been proposed in the Senate. The AUMF increase Trump's powers to wage expansive and endless war. The AUMF authorizes war against the Taliban, al-Qaeda, ISIS, and those associated groups. The AUMF authorizes war in Libya, Somalia, Yemen, Iraq, Afghanistan, and Syria. However, the President is not limited to only fighting war in those countries and against those groups. The President will be able to add any group or expand the war to any country just by notifying Congress. The AUMF has no sunset, and the power to wage war will only end if Congress passes a resolution ending it.
