On Thursday evening, following the launch of more than 50 Tomahawk cruise missiles on a Syrian air base, Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) said that the united States was not attacked, and called on President Donald Trump to follow the Constitution and come before Congress for a declaration of war.

“While we all condemn the atrocities in Syria, the United States was not attacked," Paul said.  " The President needs congressional authorization for military action as required by the Constitution, and I call on him to come to Congress for a proper debate."

“Our prior interventions in this region have done nothing to make us safer and Syria will be no different,” he added.

When Senator Paul was asked, "Do you think we should do what Senator McCain said and make this thing a no fly zone? And if they try to fly, bomb out their runways?"

Paul answered very similar to Rep. Thomas Massie (R-KY) earlier in the week.
