"We passed this law for 59 consecutive years": the US Senate overturns Trump's veto on the military budget bill

33

It became known that the American Congress overcame the veto of US President Donald Trump on the military budget. Recall that Trump vetoed the defense budget bill, motivating the decision with several considerations. For example, he said, the bill did not pay due attention to American veterans and stories.


The bill itself contained not only articles on specific military and military-technical needs, but also, for example, the next sanctions against the Nord Stream-2 gas pipeline.

In a January 1 vote, U.S. Senators overturned Trump's veto by a majority vote. It is noteworthy that the majority in the American Senate belongs to the Republicans, to whose party Trump himself belongs. The results of voting against the veto are as follows: 81 in favor, 13 against. A few days earlier, Trump's veto was also noted in the US House of Representatives with a score of 322 in favor, 87 against.

In the US Senate:

We have passed the national defense law for 59 consecutive years. And we need to do this for the 60th time.

A few days earlier, Trump called on Republicans to support his decision to veto the military budget. When the Republicans refused such support, the incumbent head of state said that the leadership of the Republican Party had become "weak and tired."

Trump:

Because of this, this terrible national defense law will be passed.

Perhaps more congressmen were happy about the cancellation of Trump's veto in Ukraine. The Ukrainian press said that "now Ukraine will be able to receive funding from the United States in the amount of $ 250 million in military support." Also in Kiev, they are delighted with the possibility of the American imposition of new sanctions against the "SP-2" and "Turkish Stream".

Let us remind you that on the eve of the Turkish Stream branch was launched in Serbia under the name Balkan Stream.

      The reason why, in principle, it is not particularly important what the name of the person sitting in the chair of the US president will be. There is no point in pinning special hopes on him, but there is also little sense in worrying that the next one will start some kind of special horror-horror.

        "We have passed the national defense law for 59 years in a row. And we need to do it for the 60th time." Trump doesn't need Congress. All his attempts to challenge the election results will end in nothing. And this demonstrative overcoming of his "veto" just confirms.

          Now the Senate does not need it, and the Republicans seem to have a majority there.
          Everyone gave up on Donald. He already asks that at least the airport be named after him. Probably all the same they will throw him this comforting bone. In Anchorage somewhere :))

          This is rather an indicative whipping of an unlucky loser.
          Until the 6th, this fruit can still puff out its cheeks.
          But after the 6th you will not envy Trump. We'll have to dance pretty well, more than one criminal case has been opened against him.
          And how many more wonderful discoveries he prepares for us ...

        Since the US defense budget is 16 (sixteen!) Times larger than the defense budget of the Russian Federation and almost 3 (three!) Times larger than the entire expenditure part of the federal budget of the Russian Federation, there is no need to worry about the Americans at all. hi

          Well, something like this. The Pentagon is already accustomed to losing a trillion dollars every year, and it was imposed here. Do you know it's insulting, and where to steal now ??. And the reason that was voiced is stupid, like ... 59 times and that means 60. laughing

      What is the point then in all this. In practice, they have no legal basis to overcome this veto. But apparently Trump is no longer considered the president, therefore they do what they want.

        Why write nonsense?
        Read the seventh part of the first article of the US Constitution. Which clearly prescribes the procedure for overcoming the presidential veto by two-thirds of the representatives of the Senate and the PP.
        Which is what happened in this case.
        Which, by the way, was predictable back in the day when Trump imposed his amusing veto.

          And you are right, in the United States the President has a suspensive veto. Well, then he did everything that was necessary and in general, I consider Trump one of the best presidents for ordinary Americans. Biden will untie the hands of corporations and they will again "take" their investments and jobs to developing countries.

    Very little for war ... for corruption and theft just right ... both in Ukraine and in the United States will receive their bonuses.
    In general, there is nothing new here ... comrade senators are going the right way ... dig deeper for yourself and Ukraine.

      This is which side to look at. The T-72 costs about $ 2 million, roughly you can buy 100 and they will cause a lot of grief. The comparison is of course so-so, but this is at first glance.

        Buy, and where and who will sell, and who has such a large-scale production of weapons, hmm?)) Roughly, you can buy a lot, but in fact it is the very ones who are not going to buy that sell. Now no one can arm themselves in large quantities quickly, no matter how much money they give.

    It's time to make a revolution in the states, to excommunicate financial tycoons and give priority to industrialists. Otherwise, this financial bubble will burst with such a roar, waves will go all over the ball. And we need to get rid of the bucks at this time, and whoever does not get rid of it will then bite his elbows, but as you know, though the elbow is close, it will not work to bite.

    Trump is a president who went against the system - against a system built for decades by puppeteers. This has already happened in American history and the fate of John F. Kennedy is exactly the same case. Kennedy led too independent of politics from the world financial behind the scenes and paid for it with his life.

    So those Americans who believe that Trump will take some kind of revenge in the elections of 2024 do not understand that Trump for these very elections may simply no longer exist in this world. He was too soft to his political enemies all the years of his presidency, and his opponents are unlikely to be so generous to him !!!
