What's happening: Pompeo said giving more support to the Saudi-led coalition is the best way to "alleviate the Yemeni peoples' suffering." The war waged by Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman in Yemen has resulted in the world's worst humanitarian crisis. Trump is expected to veto the Senate's bill, which is a rebuke of the administration's foreign policy amid broader pushback over his defense of Saudi Arabia.
