Trump vetoes defense bill, setting up possible override vote



WASHINGTON — President Donald Trump has vetoed the annual defense policy bill, following through on threats to veto a measure that has broad bipartisan support in Congress and potentially setting up the first override vote of his presidency.

The bill affirms 3% pay raises for U.S. troops and authorizes more than $740 billion in military programs and construction.

Trump has offered a series of rationales for vetoing the bill.

He has called for lawmakers to include limits on social media companies he claimed are biased against him.
