Senate to take up Trump's Yemen veto next week

The Senate is set to take up President Trump's veto of legislation cutting off U.S. support for the Saudi-led war in Yemen next week, though any override attempt is expected to fall short.

Majority Leader Mitch McConnell's (R-Ky.) office said Thursday that the chamber would "process the presidentís veto message on the Yemen resolution by the end of the week."

Trump vetoed the measure earlier this month, the second veto of his presidency. The resolution requires him to withdraw any U.S. troops in or "affecting" Yemen within 30 days unless they are fighting al Qaeda.

Because the Senate voted first on the resolution, any override attempt will start in that chamber. Neither the Senate nor the House are expected to have the votes to overcome Trump's veto.


I'm surprised McTurdhole isn't trying to stymie a vote.
