Senate approves $740.5B defense policy bill with veto-proof majority, marking first for Trump admin.

The Senate on Friday passed the National Defense Authorization Act with a veto-proof majority following weeks of veto threats from President Trump over language to rename military bases that honor former Confederate leaders and lack of a provision to end legal protections for social media companies.

The massive, $740.5 billion legislation was approved by an 84-13 margin and needed a two-thirds majority to avoid a presidential veto, serving a major blow to Mr. Trump in his final weeks in office.
