Stop Trump’s last ditch arms sale to the UAE
I urge you to immediately speak out against and commit to blocking Trump’s proposed $23.37 billion arms sale of fighter jets, armed drones, and bombs to the United Arab Emirates. For too long the United States has been complicit in the Emirati and Saudi governments' destruction of Yemen. We must hold the UAE accountable, not reward them with high-tech weaponry.
Why is this important?
Right now, Trump is trying to ram through a massive last minute sale of $23.37 BILLION in weapons to the United Arab Emirates (UAE) — the same bombs that they and Saudi Arabia use to murder Yemeni civilians and exacerbate a humanitarian crisis — and the time for us STOP the sale is already running out.
Trump is still in the White House until January 20, 2021. And between now and Inauguration Day, untold damage can be unleashed, including weapons sales like this one.
But we have a CRITICAL, narrow window to stop this sale: by law, Congress has 30 days to intervene and block the sale. The clock is ticking, but luckily, we’ve done this before, and there’s no doubt that together, we can get loud enough so that (once again) Congress listens.
Sign now to tell Congress: End U.S. complicity in Yemen, stop Trump’s arm sale to the UAE.
