President Donald Trump has vetoed a resolution to end the U.S.' involvement in the Saudi-led war in Yemen.
Congress sent the Yemen War Powers Resolution to the president's desk earlier this month. It aimed to end the U.S.' involvement in a four-year war that has killed thousands of people.
President Trump said in a statement to the Senate on Tuesday that the resolution is an "unnecessary, dangerous attempt to weaken [his] constitutional authorities, endangering the lives of American citizens."
It marks the second time he has used his presidential powers to veto a resolution. As Newsy has previously reported, the resolution's passage in the Senate and House did not reach a level of support that would enable lawmakers to override the president's veto.
