Congress looks to Bbock 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&apos;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 &apos;protect and reaffirm Congress&apos; role of approving arms sales to foreign governments.&apos; Senator Bob Menendez, the ranking Democrat on the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, said, “We are taking this step today to show that we will not stand idly by and allow the President or the Secretary of State to further erode Congressional review and oversight of arm sales.&quot;
