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.

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.

GOA Endorses Based Pro-Second Amendment Black Man for North Carolina Lieutenant Governor

Published

on

On August 4, 2020, Gun Owners of America (GOA) announced that it endorsed Mark Robinson for Lieutenant Governor of North Carolina.

Tim Macy, chairman of Gun Owners of America, declared, “We all remember the impassioned speech given by Mr. Robinson at the Greensboro City Council meeting. His ‘I’m the majority’ speech reverberated across the country, and launched Mr. Robinson down a path of advocating for and defending the Second Amendment on a national scale.”

Macy added, “Mark Robinson, who is a GOA life member, has promised to give ‘not one inch on the Second Amendment,’ and to defend our God-given right to keep and bear arms. GOA is glad to be able to support him in taking this position to the North Carolina State Government.”

Robinson made a name for himself by giving a powerful speech against the Greensboro City Council’s attempt to cancel a gun show in 2018 following the Parkland shooting, which sparked a massive wave of gun control across the nation.

Robinson’s valiant defense of the Second Amendment in this instance turned him into a national icon and is likely going to propel him to victory in the 2020 General Election.
