Trump Vetoes Resolution to Withdraw from Yemen War

The resolution passed the House and Senate, but it may not have enough support for Congress to override the president's veto.


Trump Vetoes Resolution to Withdraw from Yemen War

President Donald Trump has vetoed a resolution to end the U.S.'

Involvement in the Saudi-led war in Yemen.

Congress sent the  Yemen War Powers Resolution  to the president's desk earlier this month.

It aimed to end the U.S.'

Involvement in a four-year war that has killed thousands of people.

President Trump said  in a statement  to the Senate on Tuesday that the resolution is an "unnecessary, dangerous attempt to weaken [his] constitutional authorities, endangering the lives of American citizens." It marks the second time he has used his presidential powers to veto a resolution.

As  Newsy has previously reported , the resolution's passage in the Senate and House did not reach a level of support that would enable lawmakers to override the president's veto.
