Pelosi Statement on President Trump Veto of Bipartisan, Bicameral Yemen Resolution

April 17, 2019

Washington, D.C. – Speaker Nancy Pelosi issued this statement after President Trump vetoed bipartisan and bicameral legislation led by Chairman Adam Smith and Congressman Ro Khanna to bring an end to America’s engagement in the war in Yemen:

“The conflict in Yemen is a horrific humanitarian crisis that challenges the conscience of the entire world.  Yet the President has cynically chosen to contravene a bipartisan, bicameral vote of the Congress and perpetuate America’s shameful involvement in this heartbreaking crisis.

“This conflict must end, now.  The House of Representatives calls on the President to put peace before politics, and work with us to advance an enduring solution to end this crisis and save lives.”
