Donald Trump vetoes bills prohibiting arms sales to Saudi Arabia

Donald Trump has vetoed a trio of congressional resolutions aimed at
blocking his administration from selling billions of dollars of weapons
to Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates.
The secretary of state, Mike Pompeo, last month cited threats from
Iran as a reason to approve the $8.1bn arms sale to the two US allies in
the Gulf.
