Overturning Trump’s veto, the U.S. Senate and the House of Representatives are standing together this time.

With less than a month to go before the presidency, Trump is “hit” again as the New Year of 2021 approaches – Trump’s veto of the Defense Authorization Act of fiscal year 2021 was overturned by both houses of Congress, especially the Republican-dominated Senate, which overthroned Trump’s veto by 81 votes to 13. . This is unprecedented for Trump.

This time, Trump’s veto of the Defense Authorization Act, which has passed by both the Senate and the House of Representatives, is an “extreme pressure” on Capitol Hill and the U.S. tri-power system.

And his political ally, Senate Republican leader McConnell, does not seem to want to associate with him. McConnell said that Congress has passed the Defense Authorization Act for 59 consecutive years. This 4,500-page bill involves a $740 billion budget.

In recent years, political parties in the United States have “polarized” and rejected political trends. Republicans control the Senate and will be in line with the White House on most issues, including the previous nomination of Supreme Court justices, and McConnell has given Trump a lot of support.

But why are few Republican lawmakers supporting Trump this time?

First of all, it can be seen from the high votes passed by the Senate and the House of Representatives that there is a consensus between the two houses and the two parties here.

Trump’s staff and some Republican lawmakers have persuaded Trump not to use the veto, but Trump insists on doing things that he can’t do it knowing that he can’t do it. It is expected that he will encounter the “veto veto”.

Secondly, Trump has few terms left. With his personality, he will seize every opportunity to express himself and brush his sense of existence. Even if he is destined to be overthrown by Congress, he can attract widespread attention through this “rejection”.

Trump’s reason for rejecting the Defense Authorization Act is that he claims that the bill is beneficial to China and Russia, and he also opposes the bill’s permission to rename military bases to commemorate Confederate leaders during the American Civil War.

In the “black lives are lives” social movements caused by the Freud incident, historical figures from the American Civil War were pulled out to re-evaluate, which also exacerbated racial contradictions in the United States.

What really annoys Trump is the 230 clause of the bill that grants rights to American Internet companies. Article 230 of the bill passed in the United States in 1996 stipulates that Internet service providers are not liable for content published by third parties, and also allows them to delete improper content in good faith.

Trump believes that social media companies were biased against him during the election, such as “fact-checking” his tweets. But vetoing the Defense Authorization Act in order to abolish the “privileges” given to technology companies does have a little meaning of “killing chickens with cow knives”. Even lawmakers who support Trump’s motion do not approve of its approach.

From the “veto veto” encountered by Trump this time, it can be seen that the Trump era is coming to an end; although the members of the Senate and the House of Representatives have political differences, they are not divided on maintaining the military hegemony of the United States.

Trump has complained that Congress has limited his ability to bring American troops back. Trump did not launch a new war or expand the war during his presidency, but his withdrawal policy was restricted by the military and Congress.

Perhaps Trump has realized that Washington has a powerful military-industrial interest group, and this is exactly the “swamp” he wants to drain.
