Representative Ted Lieu (D-Calif.) clashed with Rep. Karen Handel (R-Ga. ) on Friday during a congressional session after he played the audio recording of crying children who had been separated from their parents and kept in a U.S. federal detention facility.

Ted Lieu is Trying to Save Us From a Nuclear War Started By Donald Trump

Ted Lieu, Democratic member of the House of the Representatives representing California’s 33rd Congressional District, is urging people to support the new bill that prevents the United States President, Donald Trump, from launching a first strike nuclear strike without congress’ approval.

In the latest video posted on Now This Politics, Lieu explains the problem the country has with nuclear strike process, citing it only depends on just one person. “To launch nuclear weapons in the U.S., you need the approval of the National Command Authority. That sounds really impressive until you look at it. It consists of two people: the president and his political appointee, the secretary of defense,” the congressman said.
