Washington sources reported that Mr. Trump described the resolution as an "unnecessary" and "dangerous" attempt to weaken his constitutional powers. Meanwhile it is only the second time Mr Trump has used his presidential veto since he took office in 2017. Furthermore opposition in Congress to his policy on Yemen grew last year after Saudi agents killed the journalist Jamal Khashoggi at the Saudi consulate in Istanbul.

Reportedly the resolution passed the House of Representatives in April and the Senate in March, the first time both chambers had supported a War Powers resolution, which limits the president's ability to send troops into action. Mr. Trump said "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".



Moreover US senators have accused Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman of ordering the murder of Mr. Khashoggi, but Saudi prosecutors have insisted it was a "rogue operation" and that the agents were not acting on his orders and President Trump first used his veto last month after Congress voted to block his declaration of a national emergency on the US southern border in order to secure funding for his border wall.
