Sanders Statement on Trump Administration Ending Refueling for Saudi Aircraft in Yemen

BURLINGTON, Vt., Nov. 9 – U.S. Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) issued the following statement after The Washington Post reported that the Trump administration is ending the practice of refueling Saudi coalition aircraft in Yemen:

"I’m glad that the Trump administration is ending U.S. refueling of Saudi aircraft in Yemen’s devastating war. U.S. participation in this conflict is unauthorized and unconstitutional and must end completely. I will soon bring Senate Joint Resolution 54 back to the floor for another vote, so the Senate can compel an end to U.S. participation in the Yemen war as a matter of law, not simply as a matter of the president’s discretion."
