Donald Trump’s fellow Republicans in the U.S. Senate on Friday launched a bizarre insurgency to violate his veto for the first time in his presidency.
The Senate introduced a bill on defense spending against Trump’s strong objections – 20 days before he stepped down.

Violation of Trump’s veto marks a significant departure for GOP senators, who stood out heavily by the president during the turbulent White House.

“We have passed this law for 59 consecutive years. One way or another, we are going to complete the 60th NDAA and bring it into law before this Congress concludes on Sunday, ”said Senate President Mitch McConnell.
