Trump Vetoes Resolution to Withdraw from Yemen War

President Donald Trump has vetoed a resolution to end the U.S.'

Involvement in the Saudi-led war in Yemen.

Congress sent the  Yemen War Powers Resolution  to the president's desk earlier this month.

It aimed to end the U.S.'

Involvement in a four-year war that has killed thousands of people.

President Trump said  in a statement  to the Senate on Tuesday that the resolution is an "unnecessary, dangerous attempt to weaken [his] constitutional authorities, endangering the lives of American citizens." It marks the second time he has used his presidential powers to veto a resolution.

As  Newsy has previously reported , the resolution's passage in the Senate and House did not reach a level of support that would enable lawmakers to override the president's veto.
