Senate bows to Trump vetoes, allows Saudi arms sales

Senate bows to Trump vetoes, allows Saudi arms salesThe Senate failed Monday in a bid to override a trio of vetoes issued by President Donald Trump, allowing the administration to move forward with plans to sell billions of dollars of weapons to Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates. Trump’s decision to sell the weapons in a way that would have bypassed congressional review infuriated lawmakers from both parties. In a bipartisan pushback, Democrats and Republicans banded together to pass resolutions blocking the $ 8.1 billion weapons sales to the U.S. allies in the Persian Gulf.
