Trump Vetoes Congressional Resolution to End US Role in Yemen War

WASHINGTON (UrduPoint News / Sputnik - 17th April, 2019) President Donald Trump in a letter to the Senate said he is rejecting a measure passed by Congress to end US involvement in the Saudi-led war in Yemen.

"I am returning herewith without my approval S.J. Res.

7, a joint resolution that purports to direct the President to remove United States Armed Forces from hostilities in or affecting the Republic of Yemen," Trump said on Tuesday. "This resolution is an unnecessary, dangerous attempt to weaken my constitutional authorities, endangering the lives of American citizens and brave service members, both today and in the future."
