Which best describes how the Gulf of Tonkin Resolution affected US involvement in the Vietnam War?

A. It allowed the president to act in Vietnam as he saw fit.
B. It provided unlimited funding to the South Vietnamese.
C. It authorized funding to support the Viet Cong.
D. It allowed Congress to act in Vietnam as it saw fit.

Answers

The correct answer is A. It allowed the president to act in Vietnam as he saw fit. The Gulf of Tonkin Resolution gave  President Lyndon B. Johnson almost unchecked military power for the Vietnam War. This power would then be passed on to Richard Nixon when he became president. Ultimately, this power would be limited after the Vietnam War as Congress saw the flaw in the Golf of Tonkin Resolution. This resulted in the creation of the War Powers Act.
