Trump vetoes measure to end US involvement in Yemen war

President Donald Trump has vetoed a bill Congress passed to end US military assistance in the Saudi Arabia led war in Yemen. In a break with the president, Congress voted for the first time to invoke the War Powers Resolution to try and stop US involvement in a foreign conflict.
But Trump vetoed the measure on Wednesday with the Congress lacking the votes to override him.
“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,” said Trump in a statement. Emirati FM Anwar Gargash later praised President Trump’s action on Twitter.

    There will be a ban on plastics, one on gasoline cars, and one on fossil power generation.
    Oil revenues for the Gulf will turn to nothing.
    Tackle Iran now, not later with no money and no army.
    Iran population is more than x20 times, will erase all small Gulf opponents.
