Skip to comments.Trump angrily vows to veto $740bn military spending bill in late-night Twitter tirade

Donald Trump has doubled down on his threat to veto a $740bn (£549bn) defence bill that does not include a repeal of protections for internet companies.
Congressional negotiators reached a compromise deal on Thursday regarding the National Defense Authorisation Act (NDAA), which addresses pay for service members, troop levels and weapons procurement.
The bill is expected to go to the House and Senate floors next week, where it will likely pass, before going to Mr Trump for final sign-off.
But shortly before midnight on Thursday Mr Trump, in an angry late-night Twitter tirade, vowed to veto the legislation over its failure to repeal Section 230, a provision in a 1996 law that shields social media companies from legal challenges regarding content posted by third parties.
“Very sadly for our Nation, it looks like Senator @JimInhofe will not be putting the Section 230 termination clause into the Defense Bill,” the US president tweeted at Republican senator Jim Inhofe, who is chairman of the Senate armed services committee.
“So bad for our National Security and Election Integrity. Last chance to ever get it done. I will VETO!”

Note to self: If it’s only two tweets call it a “tirade” and not a “tweet storm.” Got it.

If only the folks in the mainstream media knew how despised they really are.
Yeah, what’s up with Inhofe?
He used to be reliably conservative.
“If only the folks in the mainstream media knew how despised they really are.”
They need to find out.
Remember those videos of the Antifa / BLM protestors screaming at people in restaurants? That’s ok to do, right?
Why don’t we have a notification system set up so that anytime one of these people show up in public we can quickly organize flash protests?
The Independent aka The Indescribably boring rag proves once again, why its trash. There was no “rant”.
PS: “I will VETO” is expression of anger. Uh huh.
Trump “angrily”? another hack:

Folks on the conservative side, constitutionalist, traditionalist...we’re busy working to support our families. Working to create a retirement.
Stop tweeting. Start doing.
Have you ever noticed that President Trump is capable of doing both...and more. I have never seen someone with such energy and focus. This is especially remarkable in that he is attacked 24/7 and resisted 24/7 by seditionists on both sides of the aisle and by the media traitors. Give him a break...and your support.
Not a fan of this plan. I wouldn’t mess with the military right now. He’s had years to do it. Almost looks like a swan song.
“Very sadly for our Nation...So bad for our National Security...Last chance...I will VETO!”
Angry? Where’s the anger?
Agreed, time do actually do something about the FB and twitter tyranny.
I am not pleased with either OK Senators these days. Inhofe is old, and should step aside. Gov. Stitt could appoint a younger man. How about Jim Bridenstine. As for that neocon chicken s#*t lankford , there is no hope. I end all my emails and letters to his office with Ã¢ÂÂ I sure miss Dr. Tom Colburn.Ã¢ÂÂ
“we’re busy working to support our families. Working to create a retirement.”
Yeh, right. After the nazi democrats initiate their fascist plans, you won’t have a penny for retirement. All your retirement funds will be stolen. Conservatives best get off their Mammon-worshiping asses and start organizing the counter-insurgency.

Other FReepers are calling for mass summary executions. My post makes me squishy moderate and very relaxed. :)
lol...Yea, folks need to be careful about what they say.
Anyhow...we’re all on the same side and we’re all frustrated as hell over this corruption.
Not sure where it’s all going, but it doesn’t look good.
