Trump Again Vows To Veto Defense Bill, Goes Golfing

Reuters reports:

U.S. President Donald Trump on Sunday repeated his threat to veto a massive defense spending bill, setting the stage for a major battle with U.S. lawmakers at a time when they are racing to hammer out a compromise on more coronavirus relief.

Passage by the Republican-controlled U.S. Senate on Friday sent the measure to Trump, giving him 10 days – minus Sundays – to veto it, sign it or allow it become law without his signature.

Trump shrugged off hopes by backers that strong bipartisan support for the measure – which has become law for 59 straight years – would prompt him to reconsider his threat.
