Will US Senate neglect Trump's veto on Saudi arms sales?

Trump
The U.S. Senate will vote within days on whether to override President Donald Trump’s vetoes of legislation to block arms sale  to Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates, according to Majority Leader Mitch McConnell's announcement.
 
McConnell said the Senate would  vote before August  2, when lawmakers leave Washington for a five-week-long recess.
 
Lawmakers want Trump to push Riyadh to improve its human rights record and do more to avoid civilian casualties in the four-year-long war in Yemen. Washington Post columnist Jamal Khashoggi's murder in Saudi consulate in Turkey also affected anti-Saudi atmosphere in the Congress.
