Trump defends his veto against Defense budget “shame” for being “a gift” to China and Russia

The president of the United States, Donald Trump, has redoubled this Saturday his criticism of the Defense budget item that he vetoed last Wednesday for being a “shame” that benefits China, Russia, and technology companies.

The law, called the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) and endowed with 740,000 million dollars (about 611,000 million euros) was approved by both houses with more than the two-thirds majority that would be needed to override a possible Trump veto. However, it is not ruled out that there may be a reorganization of Republican legislators, who could side with the president.

The president opposes the legislation on two points. The first is a long-standing disagreement and focuses on one caption, included in the final version of the bill, that would require Confederate military bases and facilities to be renamed within three years.

In addition, he has criticized it because it does not include a repeal of a section, 230, which provides a legal shield to technology companies, a recent objective of the president. The bill also rejects Trump’s intention to withdraw US troops from Germany and Afghanistan.

“I am not going to sit idly by and see how this disgraceful law is passed without containing Big Tech. We must end section 230 now, before it is too late. It is horrible for our country. Show courage and do it. the right thing, “Trump has made known on his Twitter account.

In a later message, Trump has reiterated that the departure “is a gift to China, Russia and Big Tech.” “Not only does it fail to end section 230, an international danger, but it prevents us from bringing our troops back home where they belong, and makes 5G almost impossible,” he added.
