US Congress demands Trump to stop all military engagement in Yemen

Congress today approved a resolution urging Donald Trump to stop all American support for the Saudi coalition in the war in Yemen, a severe slap in the face for the president who will probably veto it.
The House of Representatives, with a Democratic majority, voted in favour (247 votes in favour, 175 against) the text already approved by the Senate, which was controlled by the Republicans.

By limiting presidential powers to engage in conflicts abroad, this vote marks a historic first, particularly humiliating for the Republican President given his majority in the upper house.
