Yemenese Civil War

After Houthi rebels toppled the Yemen government in 2014, civil war broke out. Gulf states, including Saudi Arabia and backed by the US, led the charge against these Houthi rebels with a series of bombing raids leading to a massive humanitarian crisis. These bombing raids have left the country in absolute ruins.

By lifting the ban on official visits to Taiwan, they deliberately angered China and put US-China relations in a tense spot.

Trump decided that instead of taking the high road and cooperating with the incoming administration, he’ll try and sabotage American foreign policy on his way out.
