Congress Looks To Block Trump Saudi Arms Sales With 22 Joint Resolutions

According to a report by Reuters, on Wednesday, Republican and Democratic US senators said that they would try to pass 22 separate joint resolutions intended to block President Donald Trump's plan to complete 8 billion dollars in arms sales to Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates without congressional review.

Backers of the resolutions claim they are intended to 'protect and reaffirm Congress' role of approving arms sales to foreign governments.
