The White House on Tuesday reiterated its threat to veto legislation that would allow Americans to sue the Saudi Arabian government for any role it played in the 9/11 terror attacks.
The Senate unanimously approved the bill on Tuesday, but White House press secretary Josh Earnest said late adjustments are not enough to satisfy the administration’s problems with the measure.
“Given the concerns we have expressed, it’s difficult to imagine the president signing this legislation,” Earnest told reporters.
The legislation would allow victims of terror attacks on U.S. soil or their families to take legal action against foreign governments that support terrorism.
