BREAKING: Congress Overrides President Trump’s Veto of $740 Billion Defense Bill

The Republican-controlled Senate voted to override President Trump’s veto of the $740 billion defense bill on Friday.

President Trump last Wednesday vetoed the $740 billion defense bill because the legislation renamed bases named after Confederates and would not allow for removal of our military from other countries.

Trump also wanted to add a provision terminating Section 230 protections for tech giants.

The House of Representatives Monday evening overwhelmingly voted to override President Trump’s veto of the defense bill.
