To: The United States House of Representatives and The United States Senate
Tell Congress: No Trump war!
Make it clear right now to Donald Trump, Rex Tillerson, and the national media that you will not support a pre-emptive military strike on North Korea or any other war of choice spurred on by Trump and his cadre of reckless war hawks.
Why is this important?
Donald Trump requested $54 billion in additional funds for things like war jets, air craft carriers, and nuclear weapons--even as his budget cut deeply into the U.S. State Department's diplomatic efforts.
A day later, Secretary of State Rex Tillerson said that "all options were on the table" with regard to addressing increased tensions with North Korea--including, as Tillerson noted, a pre-emptive military strike on North Korea.
And, to make matters worse, Trump has taken to Twitter, seemingly seeking to goad or shame China, which is a long-time ally of North Korea.
Trump's reckless Pentagon spending, coupled with Tillerson's bellicose rhetoric, should prompt all congressional lawmakers to state right now that they will not support a Trump administration's war of choice.
MoveOn members championed strategic and lasting diplomacy with Iran and were the backbone of the resistance to the Iraq war.
Let's make it clear to Members of Congress that we're prepared to once again flood the streets in cities and towns across the country to stop Trump’s war making.
