“President Trump vetoed a resolution passed by Congress to end U.S. military assistance in Saudi Arabia’s war in Yemen,” the AP reports.
“The veto — the second in Trump’s presidency — was expected, and Congress lacks the votes to override it. But passing the never-before-used war powers resolution was viewed as a milestone for lawmakers, who have shown a renewed willingness to assert their war-making authority after letting it atrophy for decades under presidents from both parties.”
Mike Allen: “Trump has a hold over the party and remains popular with Republican voters, so lawmakers will still side with him when it counts. But acts of defiance are becoming more frequent, and should worry the White House.”Save to Favorites
