Trump vetoes bill to end military support to the Saudi war in Yemen

Congress moved to end support after widespread war crimes have been leveled against the Saudi military including (unlawful killing of civilians, use of child-soldiers)

Trump vetoed the bipartisan supported bill today claiming it would put U.S soldiers at risk.

Donald Trump has vetoed a bill passed by Congress to end US military assistance in Saudi Arabia’s war in Yemen.

The Senate had passed a bipartisan resolution on 13 March in a 54-to-46 vote, in a move that was largely seen as a rebuke of Trump’s alliance with the Saudi forces leading military action in Yemen. The House voted on the resolution in early April, passing it with 247 votes to 175.

“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,” Trump wrote in explaining his veto.

Someone in the trump family needs Saudi money. Foreign policy is being conducted to benefit trump and his family.

This is just another elephant in the room though that some will refuse to see.


Trump doesn’t care about the price we pay at the pumps.

trump wanted to pull all troops from syria and afghanistan and there was a bipartisan freak out. Including the liberal small folk. Just more bitching, moaning and posturing.

so your cool with helping war criminals (war crimes in Yemen can’t be denied) because screw liberals?

Deflection, deflection, deflection

libs wanting to end our alliance with saudi arabia and blaming it all on oil is such a new idea, I need some time to think about it.

assad committed documented war crimes in syria and he still remains.

truth, truth, truth.

12 year old picture (April 2007), 4 years before the start of the Syrian civil war.

Is U.S military helping Assad as he commit war crimes?

who is blaming it on oil.

the saudi’s are buying children off the black market and forcing them to fight in a war.

It is literally the only word in the third post of your thread.

This thread is about Suadi’s committing war crimes, and America helping them as they do it.

but ya score some screw democrat points, and people question why American politics is doomed.
You have to make helping a country committing war crimes a partisan issue.

What’s wrong with war crimes? Do you think America is so innocent?


I’m looking forward to 2020 when a dem prez is elected and republicans can go back to pretending they have ethics and morals.

More broken campaign promises… We are supposed to be leaving the Middle East.

At least this makes sense. Libs would’ve cried even if Trump signed off on it.

If Trump agreed, libs would bitch. If Trump says no…libs will bitch. As a famous lib politician said, “what difference does it make…anyways”…libs will bitch.

At least he would have stuck to his words, but what difference does that make?
