Trump Vetoes Three Bills Limiting U.S. Military Sales to Saudi Arabia and UAE

President Trump vetoed three congressional resolutions aimed at blocking his administration from selling billions of dollars of weapons to Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates.

“This resolution would weaken America’s global competitiveness and damage the important relationships we share with our allies and partners,” the president said in a statement on Wednesday.

The arms package included thousands of precision-guided munitions, other bombs and ammunition and aircraft maintenance support, according to CBS News.

The three resolutions are not expected to get the two-thirds majority vote needed to override the vetoes.
