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.

The vote was 322-87.

In a rare New Year’s Day session, the Senate voted to override Trump’s veto.

The vote was 81-13.

This is the 112th veto override in US history.

Here’s the list of Senators who voted to sustain Trump’s veto of the defense bill:
