特朗普抨击“疲倦”’ 参议院共和党领导人在国防否决权压倒战斗

Trump slams 'weak and tired' Senate GOP leaders amid defense veto override fight

特朗普总统 on Tuesday condemned “疲倦” 参议院 Republican leadership as the upper chamber faces a vote to override his veto of the 2021 defense budget.

The president last week vetoed the $ 740 billion National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2021, criticizing the bill for not repealing Section 230 or halting the renaming of military bases named for Confederate generals. The House on Monday voted to override the veto, 现在, the Senate faces a similar vote that could defy Trump’s demands.

Weak and tired Republican ‘leadershipwill allow the bad Defense Bill to pass,” 特朗普发推文. “Say goodbye to VITAL Section 230 termination, your National Monuments, Forts (名字!) and Treasures (inserted by Elizabeth ‘PocahontasWarren), 5G, and our great soldiersbeing removed and brought home from foreign lands who do NOTHING for us.

他继续: “A disgraceful act of cowardice and total submission by weak people to Big Tech. Negotiate a better Bill, or get better leaders, NOW! Senate should not approve NDAA until fixed!!!”

The Senate is scheduled to be in session starting at noon Tuesday, but Sen. 伯尼·桑德斯, I-Vt。, said he would hold up a vote on the veto override in attempt to force a vote on $ 2,000 刺激检查.

In the House, the defense and Homeland Security spending, 除其他事项外, was voted on separately from the $ 900 billion coronavirus relief bill, which was included in a separate package.

The separation allowed Democratic members to vote against defense spending and border security elements in the legislation without putting the actual coronavirus relief in jeopardy.

lawmakers on Monday also passed a measure in the $ 900 billion COVID-19 relief package that President Trump signed on Sunday night to give Americans making up to $ 75,000 direct payments of $ 2,000 – rather than an initial proposal of $ 600 – but it is unclear whether the Senate will vote to do the same.
