Trump vetoes bill to end US involvement in Yemen war, decides to bolster Saudi-coalition

Written by Logical Men

Donald Trump is well known for his independent decision making. In the past he has always proved to walk down the lane which might best serve the American interests – atleast he claims himself doing so. There is another school of thought which criticizes Trump for not keeping the American interests secure. They believe that Trump’s policies are not beneficial for America. Bernie Sanders is reflecting this other school of thoughts quite clearly in recent election campaigns.

There comes a second veto by the Trump which stopped the bill to end the US support in Yemen war. However, Trump is determined to help Saudi-coalition in Yemen war. Various human rights groups have condemned this move of Trump because they believe that American aid in Yemen-war is causing a lot of trouble for the Yemeni people The sea port of Hodeidah was first cordoned off and it caused a lot of trouble for the world’s NGOs to send aide.

Trump explained his stance in the matter. He said that he vetoed to protect the American citizens.

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)

When the bill was presented, it was approved with a majority of 247-175 votes. The senate also voted in the favor with a vote weight age of 54-46. The members of congress are angry over this particular move of Trump, they feel like Trump is making a mistake while continuing with his war emotions. Trump on the other hand claims that he did so to protect the American interests.

The question which appears for now is the congress capability to reverse the veto. UAE has hailed the veto. Even KSA would be happy to hear about the American aid continuity.
