Senate Clears Yemen War Powers Resolution In Rebuke To Trump
« on: March 13, 2019, 08:58:18 PM »
(CNN) — The Senate voted Wednesday to curtail US military support for a Saudi-led war in Yemen, which has created a humanitarian crisis in that country, a vote seen as a rebuke of President Donald Trump's Middle East policies.

The vote was 54 to 46 with seven Republicans voting with Democrats.

The measure now goes to the House, which approved a very similar measure earlier this year, to be passed again.

I disagree.  Circle gets the square.
