US president Donald Trump has vetoed a congressional resolution aimed at putting an end to American aid to the military operation in Yemen, led by Saudi Arabia. In the decision passed by both chambers of parliament, Trump was ordered to withdraw all forces in support of the controversial operation within 30 days. However, on Tuesday evening, Trump announced that he had vetoed it – the only second of his term.

The resolution was unnecessary and dangerous attempt to weaken its constitutional powers, said the Republican. The decision would jeopardize the lives of US citizens and soldiers, he added.

To overrule this veto, a two-thirds majority would be required in both congressional chambers, which is unlikely to be achieved – even if in the senate some Republicans voted with the Democrats and thus provided for the necessary majority.

Independent Senator Bernie Sanders, a driving force behind the resolution, called Trump’s decision disappointing, but not surprising. He announced that he would not let up in his efforts. “The people of Yemen desperately need humanitarian aid, not more bombs,” said the senator, who is applying for the presidential candidacy of the Democrats.

The resolution of the US Parliament was a clear political signal against Trump’s support for Saudi Arabia – and a rare signal of unity between the Democrats and parts of the Republicans.US support for the coalition in Yemen is also controversial among Trump’s conservatives, who have a majority in the Senate. Seven Republican senators voted with the Democrats in March.

The House of Representatives is dominated by the Democrats. Again, more than a dozen Republicans voted with the Democrats. However, the resolution did not receive a two-thirds majority in either of the two chambers. Therefore, it is unlikely that the Congress would override a presidential veto.
