President Donald Trump blasted Republican leaders as “weak” and “tired” for allowing a vote to override his veto of the $740.5 billion National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA).

His comments came Tuesday in tweets.

He wrote: “Weak and tired Republican ‘leadership’ will allow the bad Defense Bill to pass. Say goodbye to VITAL Section 230 termination, your National Monuments, Forts (names!) and Treasures (inserted by Elizabeth “Pocahontas” Warren), 5G, and our great soldiers being removed and brought home from foreign lands who do NOTHING for us. A disgraceful act of cowardice and total submission by weak people to Big Tech. Negotiate a better Bill, or get better leaders, NOW! Senate should not approve NDAA until fixed!!!”

Trump had vetoed the bill on Wednesday. But the House voted 322-87 to override his veto.

similar motion will be introduced in the Republican-majority Senate, where it will also have to gain two-thirds support to override the president's veto.

The Hill noted that Trump has objected to a provision in the NDAA mandating that Confederate-named military bases be renamed. Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., had introduced the legislation changing the names of the bases.

The NDAA was also vetoed by Trump because it did not repeal Section 230, a federal law that provides liability protection to internet companies.
