  • WAR WITHOUT GETTING CONGRESS

  • ON BOARD.

  • ONE OF ONLY THREE

  • REPUBLICANS TO VOTE FOR IT

  • REMARKABLY WAS MATT GAETZ OF

  • FLORIDA WHO IS ONE OF THE

  • PRESIDENT'S CLOSEST ALLIES.

  • MAYBE THE SINGLE CLOSEST

  • ALLIES IN THE HOUSE OF

  • REPRESENTATIVES.

  • HE JOINS US NOW.

  • CONGRESSMAN, THANKS FOR

  • COMING ON.

  • I THINK IT'S FAIR TO SAY YOU

  • ARE CERTAINLY ONE OF THE

  • PEOPLE IN THE HOUSE CLOSEST

  • TO THE PRESIDENT.

  • HE IS COMPLETELY OPPOSED TO

  • THIS.

  • YOU, AS HIS CLOSE ALLY,

  • VOTED FOR IT.

  • TELL US WHY YOU DID THAT.

  • >> I SPOKE TO THE PRESIDENT

  • TODAY AFTER ONE OF AMERICA'S

  • BRAVE PATRIOTS WAS LAID DOWN

  • AT ARLINGTON.

  • ONE OF MY CONSTITUENTS WHO

  • PASSED AWAY JUST DAYS BEFORE

  • CHRISTMAS IN AFGHANISTAN.

  • THE PRESIDENT TOLD ME IS

  • MORE ANTIWAR THAN I AM.

  • AND I LOVE THE PRESIDENT FOR

  • THAT, TUCKER.

  • THE THING IS, YEAH, I THINK

  • HE GOT A FEW OF THE ADVISORS

  • OF THE PRESIDENT WHO ARE

  • TRYING TO SLOW-WALK THE

  • ADMINISTRATION INTO WAR.

  • WHEN THE PRESIDENT RELIES ON

  • HIS INSTINCTS AND WE HAVE

  • THE TRUMP DOCTRINE, WE KILL

  • THE TERRORIST AND WE COME

  • HOME.

  • AND I THINK THIS WAR POWERS

  • RESOLUTION WAS WORTHY OF

  • SUPPORT BECAUSE IT DID NOT

  • CRITICIZE THE PRESIDENT.

  • IT DID NOT SAY HE WAS WRONG

  • IN KILLING SOLEIMANI.

  • BUT HE DID -- IT DID SAY

  • THAT IF ANY PRESIDENT WANTS

  • TO DRAG OUR NATION INTO

  • ANOTHER FOREVER MIDDLE EAST

  • WAR THAT THEY REQUIRE THE

  • APPROVAL OF THE UNITED

  • STATES CONGRESS.

  • THAT'S SOMETHING I DEEPLY

  • BELIEVE.

  • AND I THINK IT'S SOMETHING

  • THE PRESIDENT DEEPLY

  • BELIEVES.

  • >> Tucker: SO WHY

  • WOULDN'T -- I MEAN, FIRST OF

  • ALL, I THINK THE

  • CONSTITUTION REQUIRES THAT.

  • I THINK IT'S PRETTY OBVIOUS

  • THAT IT DOES.

  • BUT WHY WOULDN'T CONGRESS,

  • IF THEY ARE SO IN FAVOR OF A

  • MILITARY ACTION PUT

  • THEMSELVES ON THE RECORD

  • ENDORSING IT.

  • IT SEEMS LIKE ONE OF THE

  • REASONS PEOPLE OPPOSE THIS

  • IS BECAUSE THEY ARE AFRAID.

  • THEY ARE COWARDS IN THE

  • CONGRESS.

  • >> IT'S UNFORTUNATE THAT I

  • THINK WE HAVE MEMBERS OF

  • CONGRESS THAT DEPART FROM

  • WHAT THE FRAMERS AND

  • FOUNDERS BELIEVED WOULD

  • HAPPEN.

  • THEY BELIEVE THAT WE WOULD

  • CLOSELY GUARD OUR ARTICLE 1

  • POWERS AND THAT WE WOULD

  • ENSURE THAT NO PRESIDENT

  • WOULD BE ABLE TO TAKE THOSE

  • AWAY IN ANY SORT OF AFFRONT

  • TO WHAT WAS INTENDED FOR US

  • TO BE OUR RESPONSIBILITY.

  • IT'S MY BELIEF DECLARING WAR

  • IS NON-DELIBLE DUTY FOR THE

  • UNITED STATES CONGRESS.

  • SUGGEST WE HAVE TO NOT DO

  • OUR JOB SO THAT PEOPLE IN

  • UNIFORM CAN DO THEIRS.

  • WE CAN ACTUALLY DO BOTH,

  • TUCKER.

  • >> Tucker: JUST TO BE

  • TOTALLY CLEAR, YOU ARE ONE

  • OF THREE REPUBLICANS WHO

  • VOTED IN EFFECT, AGAINST THE

  • PRESIDENT'S STATED POSITION

  • BUT YOU JUST TALKED TO THE

  • PRESIDENT AND HE SAID THAT

  • HE IS ON YOUR SIDE?

  • >> WELL, THE PRESIDENT

  • PROBABLY WOULD HAVE

  • PREFERRED THAT I VOTE ABOUT WITH

  • THE OTHER REPUBLICANS.

  • HE CERTAINLY SAID THAT I

  • THINK ON THESE BROADER

  • QUESTIONS OF WAR AND PEACE,

  • DONALD TRUMP UNDERSTANDS

  • THAT THE PRO-WAR CANDIDATE

  • LOSES PRESIDENTIAL

  • ELECTIONS.

  • HILLARY CLINTON WAS MORE

  • PRO-WAR AND LOST.

  • AND IF YOU LOOK PREVIOUSLY,

  • IT'S TYPICALLY THE ANTI-WAR

  • CANDIDATES THAT WIN.

  • I THINK SINCE 9/11 JOHN

  • KERRY WAS THE ONLY ANTI-WAR

  • CANDIDATE THAT LOST AN

  • ELECTION.

  • AND SO I THINK THAT THE

  • PRESIDENT UNDERSTANDS THAT

  • AND HE IS TOO SMART TO LET

  • NANCY PELOSI TRY TO CAST HIM

  • AS THE PRO-WAR CANDIDATE AND

  • THAT'S WHY I DON'T THINK WE

  • ARE GOING TO WAR WITH IRAN.

  • >> Tucker: I THINK THAT'S A
