The Senate today failed 49-44 to override President Donald Trump’s veto of a resolution to limit his ability to wage offensive military action against Iran. The vote came after Trump vetoed the resolution Wednesday. In the process, he blasted his fellow Republicans who sided with Democrats on the legislation.
“This was a very insulting resolution, introduced by Democrats as part of a strategy to win an election on Nov. 3 by dividing the Republican Party,” said Trump. “The few Republicans who voted for it played right into their hands.”
