Trump vetoes US defence budget

The United States President Donald Trump justified the move on Wednesday by citing the lack of "critical measures" to protect national security. "It is a 'gift' to China and Russia," he wrote in a memo to the House of Representatives.

Trump criticized that the comprehensive legislative package would not impose stronger regulations on online platforms. He also criticized that the possible renaming of military bases did not respect the history of the armed forces. Trump also criticized the attempt to limit by law the withdrawal of soldiers from Afghanistan, South Korea, and Germany, which he had ordered.
