Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., called Thursday for President Donald Trump to explain his reasoning for dropping the largest non-nuclear bomb the U.S. possesses on Islamic State targets in Afghanistan.

"He's gotta come in and explain himself," she said to reporters at a town hall in Salem, according to Fox News, speaking about Trump's plan for Afghanistan and Syria.

"As is the case with every part of Trump's foreign policy, we are all trying to understand: what is the strategy?" the former law professor added, according to The Hill. "If we can't figure out what it means, it's sort of hard to make that a message."

Warren was joined by fellow Massachusetts Democrat Rep. Seth Moulton, a veteran who served four tours in Iraq as a Marine.

"One bomb does not make any difference at all. Frankly, dropping bombs is easy," Moulton said, adding the this event is unlikely to affect much change in the country.

Warren recently decried Trump's decision to launch cruise missiles at Syria in response to the government's use of chemical weapons.

"Expanded military intervention in Syria requires action by Congress," Warren said in a statement, according to Masslive. "If President Trump expects such an authorization, he owes the American people an explanation of his strategy to bring an end to the violence in Syria. We should not escalate this conflict without clear goals and a plan to achieve them."
