THE FIX: Is President Trump’s strike on Syria constitutional?

But foreign policy experts The Fix spoke to say Trump is probably okay launching one or even a couple series of strikes on his own without Congress's permission. That's because the War Powers Act allows the president to take some military action on his own, as long as it's more of a one-off thing and not long term.
I need to do more research on the War Powers Act however I know that there are some people out there who believes depending upon the situation the President much get a declaration of war from Congress. Then again even before American involvement in Korea & Vietnam for example where America was engaged in a foreign conflict without Congressional approval.
