Senate defies Trump, passes historic resolution to end US support for Saudi Arabia in Yemen war

The Senate delivered a stern rebuke to President Donald Trump and his administration on Wednesday, voting to withdraw US support for the Saudi-led military campaign in Yemen.

The Senate voted 54-46. The resolution passed with mostly Democratic support, with a handful of Republicans crossing the aisle.

But the bulk of the GOP opposed the measure, and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell attacked the resolution during a floor speech on Wednesday morning, calling it "unnecessary and counterproductive."
