Scott talks to Congressman Ro Khanna about the bipartisan efforts in congress to end the war in Yemen. Despite a lack of popular awareness of this issue, explains Khanna, the humanitarian disaster in Yemen is horrific, and the U.S. should end its support for the Saudis immediately. He says that President Trump’s good instincts on getting out of pointless wars have not carried through into sound policy, probably because the cabinet and the national security state actually control his foreign policy.
Ro Khanna has served as the U.S. Representative from California’s 17th congressional district since 2017. He has worked with Thomas Massie, Mark Pocan, Walter Jones, and others to introduce legislation that would end the war in Yemen.
