The United States Speaker, Nancy Pelosi has said that Congress delivered a resounding rebuke to President Donald Trump’s reckless assault on America’s military and national security by overriding his senseless veto of the National Defense Authorization Act.

She disclosed this in a statement issued on Friday, after the bipartisan Senate voted 81-13 to override the President’s veto of the National Defense Authorization Act, following the House’s 322- 87 votes.

According to her, “The full United States Congress, with these sweeping and overwhelmingly bipartisan votes, has delivered a resounding rebuke to President Trump’s reckless assault on America’s military and national security.

“The President’s senseless veto of the National Defense Authorization Act would have hurt the health, financial security and safety of our servicemembers, their families, our veterans and our allies and partners worldwide”, she said.

Pelosi added that instead of keeping Americans safe, President Trump continues to use his final moments in office to sow chaos and undermine national security.

“In three weeks, our country will inaugurate a President who respects our military, protects our security and honors the will of the Congress.  Until then, the Congress urges Trump to end his desperate and dangerous sabotage”, she said.
