The Senate has passed a resolution that will remove US military support of Saudi actions in Yemen. Wow.

The Senate passed legislation to pull U.S. military support for the Saudi and Emirati-led coalition in Yemen and issue a strong bipartisan rebuke of President Donald Trump's Middle East policy.

It's the first time a War Powers resolution has passed both chambers of Congress to pull back American forces from a conflict where the commander-in-chief has deployed them. The House approved the measure last month, and together sets up a showdown with the White House and potentially Trump's first veto.
