US Congress bypasses Trump's veto on defense budget

The U.S. Congress has bypassed Donald Trump's veto on the 2021 defense budget. As reported on the website of the lower house of Congress, the parata of representatives was able to overcome the president's veto.


The lower house of Congress was able to re-adopt the $ 2021 billion defense budget for fiscal 740 by a two-thirds majority, thereby bypassing Trump's ban. The next step is a vote by the upper house of Congress scheduled for Tuesday, December 29th. If the number of voters for the budget in the Senate exceeds two-thirds, then the defense budget will be adopted. Trump's decision to ban will no longer play any role.

Earlier, both chambers had already voted for the budget, agreeing on all its provisions, however, on December 23, 2020, US President Donald Trump vetoed it, saying that the document did not include provisions important to the security of the United States. Among the provisions that displeased Trump were articles that complicate the process of withdrawing US troops from Afghanistan and Germany, renaming military bases and monuments in honor of the Confederate military leaders, and much more. Despite the fact that Trump has nothing against anti-Russian and anti-Chinese sanctions, the defense budget in its current form, he said, "will be a gift to Russia and China."

Recall that the defense budget includes new sanctions on the Russian Nord Stream 2 and Turkish Stream pipelines, further arms supplies to Ukraine worth $ 250 million, a ban on US-Russian military cooperation and sanctions against Turkey. due to the supply of Russian S-400 anti-aircraft missile systems.

        The Jews are behind him, they will not do that, they will take revenge systematically, knocking out pieces from the chessboard.)) But then the Democrats will arrange terrorist attacks in synagogues, under Obama, Islamists often went there. And they will shoot their own at discos. There, the Democrats are still Natsik, I hope makein remember. And Biden is the new crazy old man of the Washington Reich.

            Why do you think so badly of them?)) There are they everywhere from markets to space, and they are not saints, so that I could not talk about them. They also know how to do dirty deeds, for the sake of their own well-being. And leave your claims to yourself, I have acquaintances of Jewish Israelis, I communicate with them normally and make dirty jokes to the point of laughter. And I can't please everyone, so go (n).))

      So Trump understands everything correctly, the defense budget is growing, and the social sector is already gluing fins. The country cannot have all the military. Riots are already a given for the Americans, the only thing they can do is arm themselves. In general, they are preparing to eat and kill. Trump is the only one who started the country's turn in the direction of the American dream and prosperity. And the Democrats will now stupidly live for themselves in pleasure, the rest of the Americans adapt as you want. So the riots will continue, only they are no longer entirely peaceful, that even the police do not particularly interfere. Like robbed a store and go out of here and don't come here again.))

      Rather, on the contrary, the budget of a couple of trillions will become a gift to Russia, because in the next 30-40 years it will be suicidal, and during this time most of the purchased equipment will be written off. Given the budget deficit and fabulous debt, this could seriously depress the dollar and lower living standards in the United States. But not after 30 years, but after 3-5. And we will watch the shooting of demonstrations and mass pogroms on TV.

      If you wanted to, they pressed it for a long time. In 2014, they could generally erase it into dust, but someone needs it all. Hence the absolute disregard for the attitude to their funding sources. But what is it, they finance them themselves, the same Echo of Moscow. , it would be better if Gazprom sent this money for dividends

Again, urgently, they will begin to "substitute import" for something, immediately rely on their own strength as it is not destiny, only when the sanctions are hammered, it begins - ay-yy-yay, what a surprise.
    Interestingly, and now they will continue to shout from all the irons that "sanctions make us stronger"?

      Sanctions are imposed by the UN Security Council, and these are only restrictions of a number of countries.

      The veto has not yet been overcome.
      Only the first stage of "overcoming" took place.
      The easiest, since Democrats have a majority in Congress.
      The veto will be overcome only after a vote in the Senate, where the majority are with the rep.
      To get two-thirds there is a difficult task.

        In Russia, there was already one non-tsar, so arbitrariness was then generally called unlimited. I think our country, like many others, still needs a Tsar, but harder. I consider the period of accumulation of primary capital and the creation of powerful corporations in Russia over. It's time to take on the nouveau riche and other embezzlers, as well as offshore. The creation of free economic zones is the right step, who did not manage to re-register, must answer.
