President Donald Trump vetoed the sweeping defense bill that both chambers of Congress recently passed by veto-proof majorities, setting up a possible veto override that would pit members of his own party against him.

Trump had previously threatened to veto the defense bill, known as the National Defense Authorization Act, because it doesn't include a repeal of Section 230, a law that shields internet companies from liability for what is posted on their websites by them or third parties.

The bill includes provisions to limit how much money Trump can move around for his border wall and another that would require the military to rename bases that were named after figures from the Confederacy. " It is a 'gift' to China and Russia."

Trump's veto sparked an immediate rebuke from Republican Sen. Jim Inhofe, the chairman of the Senate Armed Services Committee, who said that the defense bill must become law.

"The NDAA has become law every year for 59 years straight because it's absolutely vital to our national security and our troops. This year must not be an exception. Our men and women who volunteer to wear the uniform shouldn't be denied what they need— ever," Inhofe tweeted.

And talk about more of his inserting more totally irrelevant Pork:

In case anyone missed it...Trump actually said this about the Bill which would've greatly strengthened our military (had he not stupidly vetoed it):

" It is a 'gift' to China and Russia."

The poison pill for Trump is the Illicit Cash Act in the bill. 

Here is a summary of it's contents and effect:

.

It starts with:

Given the critical importance of cracking down on criminal shell companies and the need to combat money laundering and terrorism, the  ILLICIT CASH Act  envisions a more transparent corporate ownership system and an updated, effective and efficient AML-CFT regime designed for the 21 st  century. Specifically, this legislation would:
  • Establish federal reporting requirements mandating that all beneficial ownership information  be maintained in a comprehensive federal database, with strict privacy protections, accessible by federal and local law enforcement.

Trump's whole criminal enterprise is therefore in jeopardy.

Let's see in the next few days if any of the Republicans have the backbone to override his veto of the defense bill and see what they do this omnibus bill/corona relief bill.

Personally, I can see no reason for this veto... other than to prove that he will do whatever he pleases.

Pure temper tantrum.
