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.

    1. You got that right! Right now I bet HALF of the so-called Republicans are RINO’s and just as corrupt at the Dims [sic], and the ‘Last Days’ will be just like Sodom. –Disabled Vietnam Vet: 68-70.

    2. TOTALLY AGREE!!! NOW THE REPUBLICANS ARE TRYING TO VETO EVERYTHING THAT TRUMP HAS TRIED TO PUT INTO PLACE BEFORE HE LEAVES!

THE DEMOCRATS STALLED THE PACKAGE ALL THREW THE SUMMER & FALL AND NOW THE REPUBLICANS ARE BEING MORONS AND WON’T APPROVE IT BECAUSE IT IS TOO MUCH. AMERICANS NEED THIS MONEY FOR RENT, FOOD, HEAT, HEALTH CARE, ETC. MITCH M. IS A STUBBORN A##HOLE! THE MONEY BELONGS TO THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICAN AND WHEN WE NEED IT YOU SAY NO!!

  1. Thank you President Trump for standing strong for the American people! God bless America! I know you will hear from the media about this, but remember we the people are behind you! Thank God!!!

    1. Of coarse they don’t mention the REAL reasons that it was turned back. like Billions for other countries
      and Higher payments for Undocumented……. and MUCH MUCH MORE!!!!!

      1. Why would they want to send money to other countries.. this is America and we should stand for America First. Why do they want to give money to another country to harvest fish. We have tons of lakes and we have fish hatcheries here. Ever wonder how much money went to China ? I pray President Trump pulls out this voter fraud and we can remove All of the Swamp.

  2. She needs to stop trying to put others before American.It is the people og America money. Not other countries. Then study of fallen trees.fish hatchery and the people gets 600. No. Nancy you need to stop adding bull for your lobbest. Thank you President. Trump for having Americans back. God bless

    1. Right on! Delores and Richard! Time to stop this grabage with Pelosi. I say vote her out, but she holds congress hostage with her ability to raise money from her “friends” who would drop her like a hot potato if she didn’t deliver what they want. Corruption!!!!!

  3. Glad to hear it! It’s about time Piglosi is forced to do something right . She has held us hostage long enough, he political game playing must come to an end.

  4. President Trump is a true American patriot. Most of his supposed allies in the house and senate and yes I’m talking to you Mitch McConnell and Lindsey Graham, are deserting him. Even his nominees to the supreme court! No cojones at all. History will show that we were blessed to be led by the greatest president to serve our country since George Washington. God bless Donald Trump! What ever you decide to do, Mr. President, 85 million plus American people are behind you.

  5. I have to agree with MikefromTexas, the republicans have no balls, they have shown their true colors, through this whole ordeal. If people hate this country so bad why don’t they just leave to find the country that fits their needs. I have never seen this country so divided and self-righteous than the party of the left. Come on America wake the hell up and do some research and see what they really want it is power and subjugate each and every one of us to do their will. They have not listened for the past 5 years and they just want to control you. Smell the roses, if they get what they want there will be no more freedom in the world.

  6. It makes me sick to see the weak-kneed, feckless Republicans in the House and the Senate! I think Mitch McConnell should resign. His wife is Chinese and sits on the President’s cabinet. She should also resign. Her parents own a shipping company in China, and have ties to the CCP. And…they contributed heavily to McConnell’s campaign! He is a wolf in sheep’s clothing. At least he did one thing right, and that is get a lot of conservative judges on the courts. There are a ton of other Republicans who don’t have any backbone. Spineless wimps.

  7. IS PELOSI AND ALL THE CONGRESSMEN AND SENATORS IN THE DUMARAT PARTY REALLY COMMUNISTS WORKING UNDERCOVER TO OVERTHROW AMERICA? HOW CAN THESE ELECTED OFFICIALS DO WHATEVER THEY WANT, INSTEAD OF DOING WHAT THE AMERICAN CITIZENS VOTED THEM INTO OFFICE FOR,AND THAT IS TO SERVE THE AMERICAN TAXPAYING VOTERS AND NOT THEMSELVES OR THE FOREIGN COUNTRIES THAT THEY WANT TO SEND AMERICAN TAXPAYERS MONIES TO. DO THEY REALLY HATE AMERICA SO MUCH,OR IS IT PRESIDENT TRUMP THAT THEY HATE,AND THEN THE VOLTERS WHO VOTED FOR TRUMP? TREASON IS A CRIME WHICH DEMANDS THE DEATH PENALTY,SO LETS DO THE RIGHT THING .AND THEN WE CAN VOTE THE NEW GUYS IN AFTER THE PARTY. WE DO NOT NEED LOW LIFE CROOKS IN OUR GOVERNMENT.

    1. I believe there are many many elected officials who are “beholden..” to the CCP. Also, the MSM (NYT, etc.) owe the CCP a lot. CCP bailed them out with cash when NYT about to go bankrupt. MSM is controlled in large part by the Chinese. And so are a lot of fancy Ivy League Universities. Someone should investigate where they get their money. No $$$$ from U.S. for big Universities. They have tons of money, billions in endowments. WHY are most of our Congress people suddenly rich after being in office only a short time? Someone say INFLUENCE PEDALING!

  8. Stay the course don, we are 74 million strong that trust, and believe in your courage and wisdom for all of America!
    Americans and all Christians please pray for “Our” president Donald trump and his family, to cause a reversal for truth and justice. Do not let “evil” win this battle. Pray for our dear lord and Saviour to provide the course for Donald to take, and end the madness of all those who share guilt in trying to bring down the peoples leader. Please, Pray, in Jesus name..

  9. The DOJ, FBI, CIA, et al are not doing their jobs. No one who deserves it is being charged with treeason and sent to Gitmo for the promised Military Tribunals. Jim Byrnes was in an Oval Office meeting, and has insider knowledge. Said Trump is being undermined and betrayed by his closest staff. Mark Meadows is one.

  10. Wake up Americans. We need to Ask GOD to lead president Trump. The EVIL Greedy ones will burn in HELL so what good vis al the CROOKED MONWY they received ANERICA. Will Be GREAT AGAINwhen the SWAMP IS DRAINED THANK you PRESIDENT TRUMP

  11. President Trump, I stand with you! You are bucking the Liberal Dems & liberal press, to protect the American people; keep up your good work while
    you can. Thank you for all you do!

  12. Thank you President Trump! You are still looking out for America while the Nancy Pelosis are againt America. God Bless you President Trump and know we, the American people are behind you!! Merry Christmas!

  13. As I have stated before on Social Media, This Omnibus bill is just another way for the corrupt Politicians to line their and their friends pockets at our expense. What in God’s name does sending Billions of money to foreign countries have to do with the Pandemic??? Also the monies allotted to the museum’s and all the other things that they have suggested?? $600.00 to the people who have been out of work, locked down and controlled by this bunch of hypocrites is the biggest slap in the face that we have ever experienced. They already screwed us over in the last go round when most of the monies went to the elites. Are we supposed to stand by and let them stick it up our rear again.

  14. Pelosi needs to be fired. Time for her to go. We are behind you 100 %,Trump. Biden and Karmala need to go to Gitmo or be hung for treason and anyone else involved in the fraud of this election. God Bless you President Trump and your family.

  15. wonder why Nazzi poop Oloozi Hate the Americans so Mutch is it because she knows that we don’t like her, the $.1600.- in Taxrelife vas nearly Crumbs, but the $.600. was more than sufficient, $.900. Billion for the people, $.1. 1/2. Trillion to countries that hate our guts.??
