Trump Threatens to Veto Military Funding Unless Major Internet Regulation is Terminated

The President is taking his ‘bull-in-a-China-shop’ approach to the extreme during the last few weeks of 2020.

President Trump has been described as a bull in a China shop on several occasions by lazy journalists around the country, and that’s not likely to end any time soon…particularly not in these last few weeks of his first term.

This was the point of Donald Trump, however, and the indignation being displayed by the Washington elite and their surrogates in the mainstream media is a bit campy at this point, and poorly scripted at that.  The American people chose Donald Trump to be a ruiner of the status quo and a drainer of the swamp.

So, when President Trump takes a stern approach to any issue, his base grows giddy.

Such is the case this week with his threat to veto a major military spending bill if he doesn’t get his way on a piece of controversial internet regulation.

President Trump is threatening to veto a critical defense spending bill unless Congress agrees to repeal a liability shield for social media companies.

The president tweeted late Tuesday that Section 230 of the 1996 Communications Decency Act is “a serious threat to our National Security & Election Integrity.”

Section 230 provides legal protection for technology companies over content from third parties and users. Trump referred to the provision as a “liability shielding gift” to “Big Tech.”

If he doesn’t get his way, Trump is threatening to nix this year’s National Defense Authorization Act — a crucial piece of annual legislation that covers authorization for pay raises and other spending needs for the nation’s military.

Trump has railed against Section 230 several times over the course of the last few weeks, particularly as Twitter has begun flagging his tweets concerning the outcome of the election as “misinformation”.
