Lawmakers Launch Bipartisan Effort to Block $110 Billion Saudi Arms Deal


On Capitol Hill, bipartisan resolutions have been introduced in the Senate and House to block President Trump’s $110 billion Saudi arms deal. The Senate bill was introduced by Republican Rand Paul and Democrats Chris Murphy and Al Franken. In a statement, Senator Paul said, “Given Saudi Arabia’s past support of terror, poor human rights record, and questionable tactics in its war in Yemen, Congress must carefully consider and thoroughly debate if selling them billions of dollars of arms is in our best national security interest at this time.”

Will our government continue to blindly sell weapons to the richest state in the Middle East bombing and killing citizens of the poorest country of the Middle East?
