President Donald Trump issued the second veto of his presidency Tuesday to override legislation ending U.S. military involvement in Yemen’s civil war.
The Senate voted 54-46 in favor for the resolution while the House of Representatives voted 247-175.
The administration issued a scathing statement rejecting the resolution and accusing the Congress of trying to undermine his executive authority.
The statement described the congressional action as “a joint resolution that purports to direct the President to remove United States Armed Forces from hostilities in or affecting the Republic of Yemen, with certain exceptions.”
“This resolution is an unnecessary, dangerous attempt to weaken my constitutional authorities, endangering the lives of American citizens and brave service members, both today and in the future,” Trump wrote according to NBC News.
The president issued his first veto of legislation out of Congress in March when they voted to block his declaration of a national emergency on the border.
Congress is not likely to have the votes to override the president’s veto, which would require 2/3rds support of each of the Senate and the House of Representatives.

Before Trump signed his second veto, Democratic California Rep. Ro Khanna told The Daily Caller News Foundation he hoped the president would stand against endless wars and sign the resolution.
“[The resolution] is one way for the president to make good on his view to get out of these endless wars,” Khanna said.
“This would be the first president in American history to ever sign a war powers resolution. That would be a big deal that he’s recognizing the constitutional role for Congress to limit these foreign interventions.”
