House of Representatives passes resolution to end support for Saudi Arabia in Yemen

The initiative that the Senate should consider could be described as a serious limitation of the president’s powers to wage war

The US House of Representatives voted overwhelmingly to end US involvement in Saudi Arabia’s military efforts in neighboring Yemen, in what could be considered a rebuke to President Donald Trump and his alliance with Riyadh..

With 248 votes in favor and 177 against, the House approved a resolution instructing the President to “withdraw the United States military from hostilities in or against the Republic of Yemen” within 30 days, where thousands of civilians have died as a result of years of conflict.

The initiative, which can be seen as an impressive limitation of the presidential power to wage war, was supported by all Democrats and eighteen Republicans.

The vote forces the Senate into action. Senators approved a similar resolution late last year.
