China News Service, May 7 (Xinhua) According to foreign media reports, US President Trump vetoed a resolution passed by Congress to restrict the president's use of force against Iran on the 6th local time, and called it an "insulting resolution." The Senate is expected to vote to overturn the president ’s veto on the 7th, but the Senate is unlikely to achieve this goal.

Trump called this a "very insulting resolution" and said in a statement that the measure was "based on a misunderstanding of facts and laws." He also said that the resolution was "proposed by the Democratic Party as part of a strategy to win the November 3 election by splitting the Republican Party."
After Trump vetoes the resolution, the Senate will try to overthrow the president ’s veto power on the 7th local time. Such a move would require a two-thirds majority of the Senate instead of the simple majority required to pass the bill. Although the bill is supported by both parties, it is expected that the Senate is unlikely to achieve this goal.
In another statement sent directly to the Senate, Trump urged the Senate not to veto his veto power, arguing that the resolution was "unnecessary and dangerous."
It is reported that the resolution vetoed by Trump was a joint effort of two parties in Congress to prevent the president from using force against Iran without the approval of Congress.
After the United States launched an airstrike early this year to kill Iranian general Sulaymani, American Democrats vowed to vote on the resolution. On February 13, the Senate of Congress voted to pass a war power resolution to limit Trump's future military actions against Iran. On March 11, the House of Representatives also voted to pass the resolution, which was then sent to Trump.
