WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The U.S. Senate delivered a rare double rebuke to President Donald Trump on Saudi Arabia on Thursday, voting to end U.S. military support for the war in Yemen and blame the Saudi crown prince for the murder of journalist Jamal Khashoggi.

The votes were largely symbolic because to become law the resolutions would have to pass the House of Representatives, whose Republican leaders have blocked any legislation intended to rebuke the Saudis.
===========================
But that situation may change in January.

With as poorly as Congress functions, full of second and third rate people as it is, their opinion matters less than you might think.

When the democrats take over the House in a few weeks, they should raise this matter again. Lets see if the same senators repuke trump again.

If they do - then trump's days are numbered. It would mean the republican senators FINALLY have come to their senses and realised what a colossal failure this orange ***** has been.

It will be more than just opinions in a month.
