In response to President Trump’s Yemen War Powers Resolution veto, Oxfam America’s Humanitarian Policy Lead Scott Paul said,

By Oxfam

“This veto from President Trump sends a sobering message to Yemeni families caught in the daily hell of war: our administration simply does not care”

“The people of Yemen and the parties to the conflict are watching closely and the messages US leaders send have the power to save lives. With a veto, they lose faith in the United States and see the end to their suffering a little further out of reach. Congress must act to keep up the pressure, and not let President Trump’s cynical, transactional and heartless brand of politics define America’s role in the world. Now Congress must act to end arms sales to all parties fighting in this brutal conflict.”
