Trump Maintains US Support of Saudi-Led War in Yemen with Veto

It’s a break from the America First policies outlined in the 2016 campaign.

Published

President Donald Trump vetoed the second piece of legislation during his presidency, and in doing so, he’s maintaining U.S. military involvement in Yemen’s civil war.

According to NBC News, Congress does not have the votes to override the veto. The bill in question, H.J.Res.37, would have channeled the War Powers Resolution to cut off all U.S. aid to the Saudi Arabia-led coalition in the Yemeni Civil War.

Trump declared that “This resolution is an unnecessary, dangerous attempt to weaken my constitutional authorities, endangering the lives of American citizens and brave service members, both today and in the future.”

Trump’s first veto was used in March in order to put the clamps on a bipartisan resolution that condemned his declaration of a national emergency at the southern border.

In a move to placate Saudi Arabia and the military-industrial complex, Donald Trump appears to be wavering on his America First foreign policy.

Several Congressman who have been loyal to Trump’s America First message such as Chip Roy, Jim Jordan, Mark Meadows, Matt Gaetz, Louie Gohmert, and Thomas Massie voted in favor of this resolution on February 13, 2019.

The latest presidential veto has been a troubling sign throughout the Trump administration.

First, Senate neoconservatives blocked Trump’s withdrawal plans in Syria and Afghanistan.

Lately, foreign policy has been shaky under Secretary of State Mike Pompeo’s watch, with the State Department maintaining hawkish stances on Iran and Venezuela.

On top of that, national security adviser John Bolton has been caught undermining Trump’s unprecedented negotiations with North Korean dictator Kim Jong-Un.

So far, Trump’s immigration and foreign policy moves have left a lot to be desired in America First circles.

Airbnb CEO Says Wuhan Virus Will Fundamentally Transform Domestic Travel

Post-pandemic America will not look the same.

Published

on

Brian Chesky, the CEO of Airbnb, said to Reuters on January 14, 2021 that domestic travel patterns will not revert to pre-Wuhan virus pandemic standards.

In a Zoom call with Jonathan Weber, the global technology editor for Reuters, Chesky said that business travel will move towards leisure travel due to the fact that software like Zoom facilitates teleconferencing at unprecedented rates. 

Furthermore, Chesky speculates that people won’t be visiting America’s largest cities as much as before, nor will they stay at crowded hotels. Instead, he believes that “many people will travel by car – some will travel by plane – and they’re going to travel to thousands of smaller communities. And many of these communities are going to be smaller cities and or even rural areas.” 

Additionally, the Airbnb CEO notes that “farm stays are huge right now” and that national parks travel will become a major trend among travelers in the upcoming months. The latter will grow, in Chesky’s view, because most Americans have not visited such parks.

According to an Airbnb survey, 54% of Americans have plans of traveling in 2021 or they’re in the process of planning out their trips for the summer. Chesky asserted that travelers are “yearning for what was taken away from them.” He added, “they’re not yearning to see Times Square. What they are yearning to do is to see their friends and their families they have not seen in a long time.”

Tyler Durden of ZeroHedge raised an interesting point about this change in Americans’ travel patterns:

If Chesky is right about the significant travel shift, the hotel industry could be slated for a massive wave of bankruptcies and or consolidation to a degree never before seen.  

Regardless, Americans are getting tired of the Wuhan virus lockdowns. Millions of Americans have had their freedoms infringed upon thanks to politicians who want to exploit a generalized crisis for their own gain. 

If Republicans were smart, they would be unapologetically campaigning for their states to be reopened. Americans want to go back to their normal lives and engage in activities such as travel, which the political class has deprived them of.
