BREAKING: President Donald Trump Vetoes the National Defense Authorization Act; Override Expected
President Donald Trump vetoed the 2021 National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) on Wednesday, with an override expected to follow as Congressional Republicans and Democrats unite to protect the swamp.
“My Administration has taken strong actions to help keep our Nation safe and support our service members,” Trump wrote in a message to the House of Representatives. “I will not approve this bill, which would put the interests of the Washington, D.C. establishment over those of the American people.”
The Senate approved the NDAA by a 84-13 vote earlier in the month while the House approved the measure by a 335-78 vote. Trump had opposed Sen. Elizabeth “Pocahontas” Warren’s push to remove the names of Confederate generals from military instillations and pushed for language in the bill ending Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act, which has given Big Tech a government-backed monopoly to censor conservative voices and attack the 1st Amendment.
Big League Politics has reported on President Trump’s refusal to join cancel culture and dishonor southern military veterans who put their lives on the line to defend freedom:
Even as many Republicans and conservatives fold to the left-wing mob, President Donald Trump is standing strong and defending patriotic Americans who fly the Confederate Flag.
President Trump appeared on an edition of “Fox News Sunday” where he discussed the controversial flag and gave his opinion about its use. He was asked if he found the flag to be offensive.
“It depends on who you’re talking about, when you’re talking about,” Trump said in response. “When people proudly had their Confederate flags they’re not talking about racism. They love their flag, it represents the South. They like the South … I say it’s freedom of many things, but it’s freedom of speech.”
President Trump is bucking the trend of throwing U.S. history under the bus to appease unruly Black Lives Matter supremacists. He has stood against the push to rename military bases named after Confederate generals as well.
When asked about renaming the military bases named after Confederate generals, President Trump had another colorful response for biased fake news anchor Chris Wallace.
“Go to that community where Fort Bragg is, in a great state, I love that state, go to the community, say how do you like the idea of renaming Fort Bragg, and then what are we going to name it?” Trump asked.
“We’re going to name it after the Reverend Al Sharpton?” Trump added. “What are you going to name it, Chris, tell me what you’re going to name it?”
Even if the House and Senate override President Trump’s veto, Trump will have exposed the swamp and how sellouts in both major parties are passing defense bills that weaken America as a nation.
