US Senate votes to end support for Yemen war

NSD Logo
The US Senate rebuking Donald Trump's foreign policy and his alliance with Riyadh has voted to end support for the bloody Saudi-led war effort in Yemen.The Senate's bipartisan vote was 54 to 46, with seven Republicans defying the President and aligning with Democrats.
 
Lawmakers in the Republican-controlled chamber approved a historic curtailment of the Presidential war powers. It directs Mr Trump to remove United States Armed Forces from hostilities in or affecting the Republic of Yemen within 30 days.


The text will now move to the Democrat-led House of Representatives which is likely to pass the latest effort.However, the White House has threatened a veto, calling the measure "flawed" and saying it would harm bilateral relationships in the region and hurt Washington's ability to fight extremism.

But its full passage would set a historic marker as it would be the first measure passed by Congress to invoke the 1973 War Powers Resolution to directly curtail a president's use of military powers.
