Thread: Trump Vetoes Resolution to End US Involvement in Yemen

    Trump Vetoes Resolution to End US Involvement in Yemen

    President Trump vetoed a resolution on Tuesday that would have concluded American support for the Saudi-led war in Yemen.

    "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."
    — President Trump

    The backdrop: The measure passed the House earlier in April and the Senate in March. Congress does not have the votes to override this decision. This is the second veto of Trump's presidency. Per the Washington Post, April's House vote represented the first time both the House and Senate called for the same resolution to cut off American military presence in a foreign conflict.
    Truth forever on the scaffold, Wrong forever on the throne,--
    Yet that scaffold sways the future, and, behind the dim unknown,
    Standeth God within the shadow, keeping watch above his own.

    Gee, this must really be a surprise to the true believers, if any, who still retain the belief that he is a non-interventionist bent on withdrawing us from conflict.

    Trump - just another pathetic con man.

    Tulsi has no problem demanding an end to the illegal, immoral and unconstitutional war in Yemen and everywhere else.

    Did you vote for war in Yemen? Syria?

    Trillions of dollars pissed away. Trump said he'd end it but surely by now everyone can see he's a filthy 2 bit liar.

    This was the first time I have ever seen congress able to muster up enough votes to pass a joint resolution to end foreign entanglement.
    They have loved every other single one.

    It is illusion America is Israel's bitch. Cold hard truth is Israel is a bastion set up by the crusaders, and the crusades never ended. Israel is a tool for "the west" to penetrate deeper into Muslim lands, and hold the holy city. Three blue and white flags, fake states made by "them" after world war 2.

    Ahh, how Notre Dame burned, and the outrage and blame to go around! Muslims for sure, especially since all those other church attacks, they agree.

    How many priceless mosques were destroyed by American wars in the middle east? Where were the tears and hymns then?

    Honk Honk mother $#@!ers!!

    Yeah, Trump said from the start he loved Israel, hated Iran, blah blah blah. So that means loves Saudi Arabia by proxy.

    What are the Sunnis and Shiites fighting over, really? Power. Power for what? More power. For what? To be the one to take out Israel.
    Friendly friendly! All buds now? Divide and conquer? Forgot who they were really fighting?

    In other words, back to the same ol' same ol'.

    Kim Jung Un would be wise to tell Trump to $#@! off, he is keeping the nukes.

    Yeah,, I saw that.

    Not unexpected,, Still arranging the seating for WWIII.

    there has to be places for everyone.

    Liberty is lost through complacency and a subservient mindset. When we accept or even welcome automobile checkpoints, random searches, mandatory identification cards, and paramilitary police in our streets, we have lost a vital part of our American heritage. America was born of protest, revolution, and mistrust of government. Subservient societies neither maintain nor deserve freedom for long.

    Trump might be stupid enough to do it.
