Senate rejects Saudi arms sales in rebuke to Trump

Senate rejects Saudi arms sales in rebuke to TrumpThe U.S. Senate on Thursday voted to block the sale of billions of dollars in military sales to Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates and other countries, rejecting President Donald Trump’s decision to sidestep Congress’ review of such deals by declaring an emergency over Iran. Trump has promised to veto the Senate action in order to proceed with the deals, worth some $ 8.1 billion. Senators would need 67 votes to override his veto, which looked unlikely after Thursday’s votes.
