Jamal Khashoggi, a journalist and an American resident, was recently murdered in a Saudi consulate on orders from the Saudi government. Trump seems reluctant to distance himself from this tyrannical government, but luckily congress is not. As a response to this killing, there has been bipartisan support to condemn Saudi Arabia’s actions. The strongest message that we can send is withdrawing our support from Saudi Arabia’s military efforts in Yemen. We shouldn’t be involved in the Yemeni civil war in the first place; our participation is supporting one of the worst humanitarian crises in the world.
A Senate Resolution to withdraw from Yemen, S. J. Res. 54, just got voted onto the floor yesterday. Call your Senators and ask them to vote for the bill when it moves to a full vote.
