The American Senate has voted to override President Donald J. Trump’s National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) veto for 2021.

The upper house passed the bill on Friday without the president’s signature. The vote resulted in an 80–13 difference.

Thirteen senators voted to keep Trump’s veto bill. Republicans Ted Cruz, Rand Paul, Josh Hawley, Mike Braun, Tom Cotton, Mike Lee, and John Kennedy.

On late Monday a 322–87 vote took place in overriding the veto.

In a tweet on Saturday, President Trump said that Republicans lost a chance to abandon Section 230 after the Senate override. Calling it pathetic.

“Our Republican Senate just missed the opportunity to get rid of Section 230, which gives unlimited power to Big Tech companies.”

“Pathetic!!! Now they want to give people ravaged by the China Virus $600, rather than the $2000 which they so desperately need. Not fair or smart!”

This is it. Right there; we are seeing the move that shows what we will have in the next week, the next three weeks, the next 4 years, and the next 50+ years in what once was the United States or America.
