Cain: Congress Must Work Through Aug. Recess to Keep Up with Trump's 'Pace'
Herman Cain said Congress should stay in Washington during their August recess to get the people's work done.
After returning from their Independence Day break, Congress only has a few weeks of work scheduled before taking August off to return to their districts.
Cain, a 2012 presidential candidate, said President Trump works with an "unprecedented" sense of urgency
He said that the Congress must stay in-session keep up with him.
He said Trump "needs a Congress that has that same sense of urgency."
Cain added that the growing threat from North Korea should prompt a cancellation of the recess.
He said that if Congress is in-session when or if Dictator Kim Jong-un "acts stupidly" against the U.S., they will be able to immediately vote to grant Trump war powers if necessary.
"It'll be a very short war, but the president would have to go to Congress," he said, projecting that the American military would quash any threat from Pyongyang instantaneously.
