Senate Session - June 20, 2019

The Senate voted to block the Trump administration’s arms sales to Saudi Arabia, Jordan, and the United Arab Emirates. The measures failed, however, to get enough support to overcome a presidential veto. The administration the previous month announced it was using emergency powers to bypass congressional approval, and the U.S. would sell $8 billion worth of military equipment to Saudi Arabia and other Middle East countries.
