Trump vetoes bill to end US Yemen war role

President Trump on Tuesday vetoed a bill calling for the US to withdraw support from the Saudi-led war in Yemen. In a letter to the Senate, Trump called the measure ’a dangerous attempt to weaken my constitutional authorities, endangering the lives of American citizens’.

Wrong move Trump. Leave Saudi Barbaria and let the soldiers go home.

Clearly he governs separately from how he campaigns. Hopefully his supports call him out for bowing down to John Bolton and Mike Pompeo.

A bit of true colors showing here?!? I have applauded some of clearer moves from Trump that seem to forward the "America First" agenda but there seems to be no "America First" strategy implementation in this move as far as I can tell. Unless I am missing something, anyone care to explain how this benefits the US from their perspective?

Trump wants to make all the decisions. Dictator for life. Congress can't tell him what to do even if it is a good decision. Trump sees congress as a threat to his tin god philosophy.

Trump, the more you do this, the less likely you will be re-elected president. Saudi Arabia needs to be destroyed along with Israel.

Trump didn't get us involved in Yemen, Obama did 4 years ago. Did congress give a dang then, nope. We don't have troops, nor are our forces taking any action. Remember Trump is trying to apply pressure to Iran, and influence Saudi Arabia to modernize their society. This was purely a political plot to create a riff with Trump supporters. Don't fall for the bait.
