White House threatens to veto congress anti-Saudi effort

The administration of US President Donald Trump has threatened to veto an effort by Congress to end American military support for the Saudi-led coalition in the war on Yemen.
The White House says the resolution is inappropriate because it has not provided Saudis with combat troops. It also says the measure would harm relationships in the region and limit the U-S ability to fight extremism. Two weeks ago, Democrats and Republicans re-introduced the war powers resolution to send a message to Riyadh about the war on Yemen and the killing of journalist Jamal Khashoggi. The resolution requires two-thirds majorities in both congressional chambers to overcome a Trump veto.
