Obama Wants U.N. Resolution to Ban Nuclear Testing, Plans to Bypass Congress

President Barack Obama plans to seek a resolution from the United Nations to ban the testing of nuclear weapons, bypassing Congress to do so.

According to a report from the Washington Post’s Josh Rogin, Obama officials have briefed congressional leaders and staffers to push for the action prior to the presidential election.

Republicans are furious that Obama is trying to achieve another national security milestone outside of Congress, according to Rogin.

The treaty was signed by former President Bill Clinton’s administration, but the Senate refused to ratify it.

The last nuclear test by the United States was conducted in 1992.
