Trump says he will veto the defense authorization ver Exclusion of Article 230 termination
President Donald Trump said he will veto the annual defense authorization bill to exclude it from provisions ending in Section 230, which gives major tech companies such as Twitter and Facebook special immunity from lawsuits.
President Trump tweeted late Thursday: “Very sadly for our Nation, it looks like Senator @JimInhofe will not be putting the Section 230 termination clause into the Defense Bill. So bad for our National Security and Election Integrity. Last chance to ever get it done. I will VETO!”
The National Defense Authorization Act 2021 (NDAA) is an annual bill authorizing the activities and expenditures of the Department of Defense (DOD) and other activities and expenditures related to defense. The legislation is "must-pass" and has been passed for 59 consecutive years.
It is common for presidents to threaten to veto the bill, which permits hundreds of billions of dollars each year in defense spending and spans thousands of pages permitting all kinds of provisions required by members of Congress.
