‘I Will VETO!’: Trump Rages At Republicans For Refusing To Target Social Media Companies He Says Are Mean To Him In Defense Bill

President Donald Trump on Friday slammed congressional Republicans for moving forward on a must-pass defense policy bill without repealing a legal shield for social media companies whom the president believes are biased against him, saying in a tweet “I will VETO!”

Despite Trump’s veto threat, the final version of the National Defense Authorization Act that will soon be considered by the House and Senate won’t include Trump’s long-sought repeal of the legal immunity for online companies, known as Section 230.

Senate Armed Services Chair Jim Inhofe (R-Okla.) said that Section 230 “has nothing to do with the military.”

“You can’t do it in this bill. That’s not a part of the bill,” Inhofe said.
