The US President has vetoed a congressional resolution that aimed to stop the country’s military support for the Saudi-led war on Yemen.
Donald Trump described the resolution as an unnecessary and dangerous attempt to weaken his constitutional authorities. He also claimed that the attempt by congress would endanger the lives of U-S citizens and troops. The U-A-E, which is also involved in the Yemen war, hailed Trump’s move as a positive signal. Trump had vowed to veto the bill despite appeals by congressmen to send a strong message to Riyadh. Congress passed the resolution following Saudi Arabia’s repeated targeting of civilian gatherings in Yemen. The Kingdom has been accused of committing war crimes in its four-year-long onslaught on the impoverished Arab country.
