The US Senate votes to block Trump’s 8-billion dollar Saudi arms sale

Striking a blow to President Donald Trump, the US Senate has voted to block the sale of billions of dollars’ worth of weapons to Saudi Arabia.
Mr Trump bypassed the Congress last month, in an attempt to push through the 8-billion dollar deal, citing threats to Saudi Arabia from its bitter rival Iran.
However, yesterday – in a rare bipartisan act – the Republican-led Senate passed three resolutions to prevent the sale.
The President has promised to veto the action, leaving the deal in limbo!
