Trump’s Yemen veto won’t stop Congress from trying to punish Saudi Arabia

Yemen war participation vetoedPresident Trump vetoed a bipartisan resolution to cut off U.S. military aid to the Saudi-led coalition fighting in Yemen’s civil war, which has killed an estimated 85,000 children due to famine, so lawmakers are exploring other means, including cutting off some arms sales to Saudi Arabia.

This was the first time lawmakers on Capitol Hill have sent a president legislation under the War Powers Act to end U.S. involvement in a conflict abroad, and it marks only the second veto of Trump’s presidency. While he argued he doesn’t want U.S. forces involved in the conflict indefinitely, Trump told lawmakers the resolution would have set a bad precedent.
