Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell is sending a clear message to Donald Trump – “Don’t do it.”
McConnell is specifically pleading with Trump to not veto the defense bill.
According to Fox News, “the GOP-controlled Senate approved the $740 billion national defense bill despite Trump’s veto threat. Trump wants any National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) to include the repeal of Section 230 of the 1996 Communications Decency Act.”
McConnell on the floor now. Implores Trump not to veto defense bill. Sets up veto override effort on December 29, provided Trump vetoes the bill, & the House overrides the veto on December 28

“Trump’s position on the veto threatens to divide Republicans in the Senate. The final vote in the Senate was 84-13, well beyond the two-thirds requirement to override a potential veto if Trump carried through on his threat to sink the legislation,” reported Fox News.
