For 59 years, Congress has been passed and the President signed the National Defense Authorization Act. So why is Donald Trump threatening to veto this year’s $ 700 billion change and plan, which has broad bipartisan support and is widely seen as essential to national security?
Trump opposed a provision that would change the names of military bases named after Confederate officials and a non-defense add-on that would preserve a piece of the 1996 telecommunications law protecting tech companies from any responsibility for the content posted by their users.
None of this explains why he would risk a humiliating waiver of his veto to bring down a popular bipartisan bill. One thing that would explain his bizarre stance here is another add-on: one that might reveal financial arrangements Trump would prefer to keep hidden.
