Trump objects to measure ending US support for Saudis in Yemen

President Donald Trump listens to questions from reporters about an impending U.S. Government shutdown  in the Oval Office of the White House in Washington on Dec. 21, 2018.

The Trump administration threatened on Monday to veto an effort in the US Congress to end US military support for the Saudi-led coalition in the war in Yemen, continuing a standoff with lawmakers over policy toward the kingdom.

The administration said the resolution was inappropriate because US forces had provided aircraft refueling and other support in the Yemen conflict, not combat troops.
