Trump threatens to veto defense spending bill, citing China 1

President Trump on Sunday reiterated his threat to veto a $740 billion defense spending bill, setting up a showdown with the Congress that passed the legislation last week by veto-proof margins.

“THE BIGGEST WINNER OF OUR NEW DEFENSE BILL IS CHINA!. I WILL VETO!” Trump posted on Twitter.

The Republican-controlled Senate passed the bill 84-13 on Friday and the House, controlled by Democrats, approved it by a 335-78 vote on Tuesday.

Both are beyond the two-thirds majority needed to defeat a veto by the president.

It would be the first override of a Trump veto during his presidency.

Trump has 10 days to issue the veto or allow it to become law without his signature.

Trump has said he would veto the bill if it arrived on his desk without a repeal of Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act that protects online platforms — like Facebook and Twitter — from liability for publishing information from third parties on their sites.

He also opposed any efforts to hinder his troop drawdown in Afghanistan or rename US military bases named for Confederate military officials.

It’s unclear what his specific objections are in regards to China, as the defense bill sets aside billions to counter Beijing’s aggressive behavior in the region under the Pacific Deterrence Initiative.
