US senate defies Trump to vote to end support for Saudi-led war in Yemen


‘We are in a historic moment,’ said independent senator Bernie Sanders. He praised the US senate for its stance against the war in Yemen ‘which has caused the worst humanitarian crisis on earth, with 85,000 children already starving to death’. The senators voted 56-41 to recommend that the US stop supporting the war, a direct affront to the administration. The Senate also passed a seperate resolution saying Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman was responsible for the murder of journalist Jamal Khashoggi
