Trump vetoes bill ending US support for Yemen war

Trump vetoes congressional resolution to end U.S. involvement in Yemen war

The US President has vetoed a congressional resolution that aimed to stop the country's military support for the Saudi-led war on Yemen. This is the second veto of Trump's presidency.

"This resolution is an unnecessary, unsafe attempt to weaken my constitutional authorities, endangering the lives of American citizens and fearless service members, both today and in the future", said Trump in a statement.

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.

Congress passed a historic War Powers resolution in early April, featuring strong bipartisan support, representing much of President Trump's foreign policy vision of "America First", which contended that America should intervene less overseas and focus more on rebuilding the country.

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

The U.S. has provided billions of dollars of arms to the Saudi-led coalition fighting against Iran-backed rebels in Yemen.

But the Saudi-led effort, which has targeted civilian facilities and prevented aid shipments from getting to Yemenis, has been faulted by human rights organizations for exacerbating what the United Nations has deemed the world's worst humanitarian catastrophe.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi issued a statement Tuesday night saying: "The conflict in Yemen is a horrific humanitarian crisis that challenges the conscience of the entire world".

"It should come as a surprise to nobody", the official said. Seven Republican senators and 18 Republican House members voted for the resolution, in addition to all of the Democrats in Congress.

President Trump with Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman past year. Even so, Trump has resisted holding Mohammed responsible and has continued to embrace him and other Saudi leaders.

2020 Democratic candidate Bernie Sanders expressed a similar sentiment, writing: 'I am disappointed, but not surprised, that Trump has rejected the bi-partisan resolution to end US involvement in the horrific war in Yemen. Congress voted to block the emergency declaration and Trump vetoed that measure. As more information comes in we will update this post.

Rep. Ro Khanna (D-Calif.), who helped lead the House effort to end USA military involvement in Yemen, denounced Trump's veto on Twitter.

In his statement vetoing the resolution, Trump called such support "limited" and argued that it has not 'introduced United States military personnel into hostilities'.

He said the U.S.is providing the support to protect the safety of more than 80,000 Americans who live in certain areas of the coalition countries subject to Houthi attacks from Yemen.

He also urged members of Congress to instead focus their energies on the drawdown of USA troops in Afghanistan and Syria.
