1/ This is a sad day for America. Want to see a megalomaniac so compromised by the Saudis that he’s willing to do nothing while thousands of Yemenis die? Look no further—Trump just vetoed the bipartisan Yemen War Powers Resolution.

The US’ participation in the Saudi-led war on Yemen is unconstitutional and wrong. Trump’s veto undermines Congress’ constitutional power on matters of war and peace, and will only serve to continue one of the world’s greatest humanitarian crises.

President Trump’s outrageous veto of our bicameral, bipartisan Yemen resolution is written in the blood of the children killed by American-made weapons, targeted under the direction of Kushner’s Saudi buddy with the bonesaw.
