Reuters just reported that US President Trump vetoed the defense authorization bill passed by both parties on Wednesday (23rd local time).

According to the analysis of the report, this increases the possibility that the U.S. government may face a shutdown during the coronavirus pandemic and will trigger new turmoil and unrest in Washington.

The U.S. Defense Authorization Act for fiscal year 2021 includes several provisions that make Trump dissatisfied, such as restricting the withdrawal of U.S. troops from Germany and renaming military bases named after Confederate military commanders, but these are not the things that make the President most dissatisfied with the President.

According to a previous report by The Wall Street Journal, Trump has threatened to veto the defense authorization bill if it does not include the repeal of section 230 of the Communications Regulatory Act.

December 24th According to a report by the Russian Satellite News Agency on December 24, the White House of the United States announced that current President Trump vetoed the $740 billion defense budget bill approved by Congress.

Trump, in exercise of the presidential veto, vetoed the Defense Authorization Act for fiscal year 2021, which was overwhelmingly passed by the Senate.

“The bill does not include key safeguarding national security provisions,” Trump said. “It runs counter to my administration’s national security and foreign policy, which is ‘America first.”

It is reported that after the bill passed in the Senate on the 11th of this month, Trump has 10 days to decide whether to sign the law. Otherwise, the bill will automatically enter into force after 10 days without Trump’s signature.

The bill has more than two-thirds of the congressmen’s support in both houses of Congress, which is enough to overturn Trump’s veto power.

The draft law provides for a series of anti-Russian measures such as expanding sanctions on Russia’s “North Stream-2” and “Turkey Current” gas pipelines, continuing to supply weapons to Ukraine, prohibiting U.S. and Russian military cooperation, and imposing sanctions on Turkey’s procurement of Russian S-400 air defense systems.

“This is a ‘gift’ for China and Russia.” On the 23rd local time, U.S. President Trump threw such a “reason” while rejecting the two-party U.S. Defense Authorization Bill for fiscal year 2021.

“My administration has taken strong action to help maintain our national security and support our service personnel,” Trump wrote in a statement, according to the Russian Satellite News Agency.

I will not approve this bill because it puts the interests of Washington, D.C. above the interests of the American people.”

“Unfortunately, the bill does not include key national security measures, but includes provisions that do not respect the history of our veterans and our military, and contradicts the current administration’s efforts to prioritize the United States in national security and foreign policy actions.”

Trump also said in the statement submitted to Congress.

Moreover, the report said that Trump continued to claim that the bill was “a gift to China and Russia” without providing specific details.

In fact, this is not the first time he has ever talked about China.

On the 13th, Trump tweeted and threatened to veto the bill, claiming that the bill’s “largest” The winner is China; on the 23rd local time, Trump vetoed the bill, which Reuters analyzed that it increased the possibility that the U.S. government might face a shutdown during the coronavirus pandemic and would trigger new turmoil and unrest in Washington.

According to previous analysis by several U.S. media, the U.S. Defense Authorization Act for fiscal year 2021 includes several provisions that make Trump dissatisfied, such as restricting the withdrawal of U.S. troops from Germany and renaming military bases named after Confederate military commanders, but what annoys the President most is not these things.

According to The Wall Street Journal, Trump has threatened to veto the Defense Authorization Act if it does not include the repeal of section 230 of the Communications Regulatory Act.
