Prevent Arms Deal with Saudi Arabia
Trump wants to do a “tremendous” arms deal with Saudi Arabia. The reports of $110 billion in sales are exaggerated and unsubstantiated; however, $25 billion in sales is under way, with future sales likely. Selling arms to the Saudis is problematic, as they have an abysmal human rights record, and they are under suspicion of having used weapons to commit war crimes in Yemen.
Bipartisan alliances in both the House and Senate have introduced resolutions to prohibit arms sales with Saudi Arabia. The House resolution (H.J. Res. 102) was introduced by Justin Amash (R-MI-3) and co-sponsored by Mark Pocan (D-WI-2), Thomas Massie (R-KY-4), Barbara Lee (D-CA-13), Walter Jones (R-NC-3), and James McGovern (D-MA-2). The Senate resolution (S.J. Res. 42) was introduced by Rand Paul (R-KY) and co-sponsored by Christopher Murphy (D-CT) and Al Franken (D-MN).
If your Senator or Member of Congress co-sponsored S.J. Res. 42 or H.J. Res. 102, please contact them to thank them. If not, contact your Senators and MoC to ask them to co-sponsor these resolutions.
