  • Yemen war: Trump vetoes bill to end US support for Saudi-led coalition

    US President Donald Trump has vetoed a bill passed by Congress to end support for the Saudi-led war in Yemen.

    Mr Trump described the resolution as an "unnecessary" and "dangerous" attempt to weaken his constitutional powers.

    It is only the second time Mr Trump has used his presidential veto since he took office in 2017.

    Opposition in Congress to his policy on Yemen grew last year after Saudi agents killed the journalist Jamal Khashoggi at the Saudi consulate in Istanbul.

    The resolution passed the House of Representatives in April and the Senate in March, the first time both chambers had supported a War Powers resolution, which limits the president's ability to send troops into action.

    WTF? I mean, veto it if you want, but not because it weakens YOU!

        it doesn't even make sense, given his more-or-less "get our military out of the rest of the world" statements.

          I'm actually going to take him at his word on this one. He doesn't really give a shit one way or the other about Saudi Arabia or Yemen, he cares because his authority is being disrespected!
