From Slate:

The Trump administration is planning to increase support for the Saudi-led military campaign. Only a couple days ago, Yemen reached the 2nd anniversary of the conflict, which has been receiving support by the US to Saudi Arabia. Back in December, the Obama administration starting withdrawing some of its support and stopped a sale of guided munition kits to Saudi Arabia. Now, the Trump administration plans to renew those sales. It has already begun increasing intelligence and logistical support to Saudi Arabia and the UAE coalition.

Secretary of Defense James Mattis is behind the push to amp up support for the operation, according to the Washington Post. And Saudi Arabia has also been making overtures to the Trump administration, with Prince Mohammad bin Salman dubiously referring to the president as a “true friend of Muslims” after a White House meeting earlier this month.
