Pelosi is on the warpath again. She isn't too pleased with Trump's announcement that he is sending American troops to the Middle East. She said this is cause for alarm.
Trump's decision was announced Friday night by Defense Secretary Mark Esper and Gen. Joseph Dunford, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff. Esper said the forces would be there for defense only. He also stated that the US was responding to requests from Saudi and UAE officials to improve their air and missile defenses after last weekend's attacks on Saudi Arabian oil installations.
Details regarding the U.S. deployments were to be discussed over the weekend and released next week.
Meanwhile, Pelosi said that the House and Senate had passed bipartisan legislation months ago to block arms sales to Saudi Arabia and UAE, as well as condemn the Saudis' involvement in Yemen.
Trump though said he was not planning a military response to the attacks.
