Trump declares emergency to expedite arms sales to Saudi Arabia and UAE
Rep. Michael McCaul of Texas, the top Republican on the House Foreign Affairs Committee, called the administration’s move “unfortunate” in a statement.
While noting he understood the frustration that “key members of Congress held these arms sales for an extended period,” he added that “The President’s decision to use an emergency waiver on these sales is unfortunate and will damage certain future congressional interactions.”
“I am disappointed, but not surprised, that the Trump Administration has failed once again to prioritize our long-term national security interests or stand up for human rights, and instead is granting favors to authoritarian countries like Saudi Arabia,” he added.

Donald Trump has established a very friendly relationship with Kim Jong Un-----the two dynamic leaders have even exchanged 'love letters'! And yes, the North Korean government has GOT to be able to defend itself against the aggressions and provocations of the imperialistic regime in South Korea; so Donald Trump would be PERFECTLY within his rights to sell any necessary arms to North Korea, to maintain a balance of power on the Korean Peninsula!

What's WRONG with you?!??

What exactly is the national emergency? As I have said before, once the Congress flips they must curtail the powers of the President so that this nonsense can never happen again.
One of the things Congress should DEFINITELY do is to strip the President of any authority to set tariffs unilaterally, on his own. A tariff is a TAX, and we would NEVER allow any President to simply alter income tax rates at his (or her) whim. Yet we do so with tariffs! What's WRONG with this picture?!?!??

Trump still needs the proposal to pass Congress. That's how I know he hasn't actually sold (provided?) weapons the the Ukraine despite many rubes claiming he has.

Um, this thread has nothing to do with Ukraine, BP. UAE is the United Arab Emirates, and Trump is simply OVER-RIDING the objections of Congress on arms sales to both Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates, on supposed national security grounds.

What he is doing here is nothing less than outrageous, because the war in Yemen that these weapons are going to be used in, is turning into the world's worst humanitarian catastrophe.

You think Trump cares about that?

Here's a hint: He doesn't give a flying French fart.
