Senate passes bill to end support for war against YemenDespite a veto threat from the president, the Senate approved legislation Wednesday that would force the Trump administration to end its military support for the Saudi-led war in Yemen.

Wednesday's 54-to-46 vote served as a bipartisan rebuke to President Donald Trump and to Saudi leaders. It also highlighted lawmakers' growing unease with America's role in that grisly conflict, which has left more than 50,000 civilians dead and millions of Yemenis on the brink of starvation.

"The United States, with little media attention, has been Saudi Arabia's partner in this horrific war," Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., said during a Senate floor speech Wednesday. He is a lead author of the measure, which relies on a Vietnam-era law designed to limit the president's power to start or escalate military engagement abroad.
