Senator Rand Paul stopped an attempt by Senate minority leader Chuck Schumer from bringing a resolution to advance the senate vote on the house resolution to reverse President Trumps withdrawal of U.S. troops in Syria.

Under Senate rules any one senator can try to set up a vote on a bill. But because that requires unanimous consent, any one senator can block it.

The one senator to block it was Rand Paul.

“He should come to the floor and say that we are ready to declare war. We are ready to authorize force, and we are going to stick our troops in the middle of this messy, messy, five-sided civil war where we would be ostensibly opposed to the Turkish government that has made an incursion,” Paul argued.
