Trump may veto the defense budget bill

US President Donald Trump has said that he will veto the US defense budget bill if it contains a provision to rename military bases named after generals of the slave-owning South in the Civil war.

I will Veto the Defense Authorization Bill if the Elizabeth “Pocahontas” Warren (of all people!) Amendment, which will lead to the renaming (plus other bad things!) of Fort Bragg, Fort Robert E. Lee, and many other Military Bases from which we won two World Wars, is in the Bill! – Trump wrote on Twitter.

Earlier, the US Senate armed services committee approved a $ 740 billion defense budget. The bill still needs to pass the full Senate, and then it should be approved by the House of Representatives and, if necessary, vote again, and only then it will go to President Donald Trump for signature.

Among the measures in the bill is a proposal to rename military bases named after generals of the slave-owning South in the Civil war. Senator Elizabeth Warren introduced the amendment amid protests and riots after the death of African-American George Floyd at the hands of police in Minneapolis.
