Trump vetoes defense bill, sides with the American people over Congress

President Trump is in the middle of an escalating battle with Congress – and he just landed the first punch.

The Washington Examiner reports:

President Trump vetoed a critical defense spending and policy bill Wednesday, fulfilling a pledge made weeks ago to block the measure and setting up a post-Christmas battle with Congress now complicated by his opposition to a massive spending and coronavirus aid package.

Trump wants the $740.5 billion National Defense Authorization Act to include language that would remove Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act, which provides a lawsuit shield protecting social media giants, including Twitter and Facebook, who the president and conservatives accuse of unfair censorship.

“The act fails to make any meaningful changes to Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act, despite bipartisan calls for repealing the provision,” Trump said in his veto message.

The House Democratic leader, Nancy Pelosi, can’t have been happy at the rejection – but that’s only the start.

Rumors have also been flying that President Trump is about to veto the massive “omnibus” and “stimulus” bills that give American’s a measly $600 and send millions to foreign countries.

If and when that happens, we’ll report on it here.
