"I did not see respect for military history": Trump vetoed the draft US military budget

Less than a month before the end of his presidential term, Donald Trump presented an unpleasant surprise for Congress. He vetoed the draft military budget, which had previously received approval from Congressmen. We are talking about the military budget for 2021, which provides for the disposal of the amount of almost 800 billion dollars.

How did Trump justify his decision to veto the military budget?

According to the press service of the White House, in the president's opinion, the proposed version of the military budget does not take into account critical measures to ensure national security. Trump also adds that he did not see in the draft military budget "respect for veterans and stories as such".

Donald Trump:

This defense budget runs counter to the measures taken by my administration to ensure American national interests, to ensure national security, and on certain foreign policy issues.

It is worth noting here that in the draft military budget, its developers have introduced sanctions against Nord Stream 2, as well as against Turkish Stream.

The move to veto the defense budget by Trump has stumped Congress. Thus, the Speaker of the House of Representatives Nancy Pelosi said that "the president's veto will be overcome by a vote in Congress." According to her, the voting is scheduled for December 28.

Pelosi:

The veto is a manifestation of incredible recklessness. This decision jeopardizes the national security of the United States and also deprives the aid and support of our allies.

As you can see, both Trump, who vetoed the draft budget, and those American politicians who advocate the adoption of the defense budget in its current form, speaks of a "threat to national security".

      Agent Donald decided to have some fun at last.

        This is how we see "sleepy Joe" with a "crooked starter" trying to start a truck on the White House lawn.

        In this particular case, there will be no delays.
        This ridiculous veto is expected and can be overcome at a run, there are plenty of votes for this in Congress.
        But the new, so far planned portion of sanctions against SP-2 is very serious. This may not be a fiction, but a harsh reality. And Trump will approve of it, alas.

      Let Trump do not let you down - swing the Maidan in the USA. You shouldn't have pinned so many hopes on you.

      I'm wondering if he's kind of a businessman after all. How is he going to continue to work in his country? Or agent Fedorovich will retire to Crimea? Although it will be cool if he arranges a parallel inauguration of himself. wassat But someone here was trying to prove to me that the VBSSA is obligatory and cannot be vetoed.

        It is mandatory for execution when it has already been adopted by Congress and signed by the President. In the meantime, all these procedures have not been carried out, he remains in the draft law. Trump demonstrated that at the stage from the draft law of the military budget to the direct military budget, that very presidential veto may appear.

          Obligation to execute the budget is also a rather "ephemeral" concept. The budget can be executed with either a Surplus or a Deficit ... the point is that all amendments are also adopted in the form of Laws.

    Each has its own threat to national security

    What a perpendicular ... Now all the congressmen will be removed from the Christmas holidays ... and in the Senate the Democrats also have a majority? If this document gets stuck in the bureaucratic cogs, the beginning of the year will be fun for the US administration !!!

    ... voting is scheduled for December 28.

    For the military budget in the Senate, support for both Republicans and Democrats will briefly delay the veto.

    Trump still needs to veto the decisions of Congress. That will be great.

    Trump has his own vision of what is happening with Pelosi, naturally his own and of course opposite to Trump. And then there is a catch - sanctions against "SP-2" were included in the military budget, and the president blocked its adoption. It's time for Democrats to raise the question again, who is Trump working for?

    Trump is just better than other American politicians who sees what kind of swamp their country is in and took steps to exit. With the arrival of the can, one should most likely expect military spending of 1 trillion and an increase in the national debt due to this, with the deepening chaos in the world due to the fact that this budget. In the term US National Security, you can, if you wish, include anything you want, for example, countering the machinations of tyrannosaurs by building 100 Augs and so on. Whoever said anything about Trump, but he tried to keep expenses more economical.

    I looked at the photo in the article, the question arose - If this is a stern flag, then the aircraft carrier is sitting on the stones? Taking into account the width of its hull, the coast in the photo is somehow close. Or do they have depths at once at the coast of a cliff for fifty meters?
