US President Donald Trump has criticized the leadership of the Republican Party in the Senate, where a vote on the blocked defense budget is due.
On his Twitter account, Trump called the defense budget law bad and the Republican leadership’s inaction “a shameful example of cowardice and total submission to technology companies.”
Recall that Donald Trump blocked the draft defense budget approved by the Congress for the 2021 fiscal year. According to him, the document does not include critical measures necessary to ensure US national security. In addition, the politician called the draft military budget “a gift for Russia and the PRC.”
However, the House of Representatives of the US Congress overcame the president’s veto. The $ 740 billion budget proposal has been re-approved by the lower house of the American legislature.
