Welcome to Monday, December 28th, butters and margarines...
President Trump has signed the massive $2.3 trillion dollar coronavirus relief and government funding bill into law.
However, the president added a caveat: that he's only signing it "with a strong message that makes clear to Congress that wasteful items need to be removed. I will send back to Congress a redlined version, item by item, accompanied by the formal rescission request to Congress insisting that those funds be removed from the bill."
Congress is not required to honor this request.
The president ended his statement saying:
Also last week, Trump followed through with his threat to veto the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) for fiscal year 2021 for, among other reasons, not including reforms to liability protections (the aforementioned "Section 230") for social media companies.
Nashville Blast Suspect Died In Explosion
Authorities are saying the man suspected of setting off a bomb in an RV that rocked downtown Nashville on Christmas morning died in the explosion.
Anthony Q. Warner, 63, owned a home in the suburban Nashville community of Antioch.
U.S. Attorney Don Cochran identified Warner as the suspect on Sunday evening, saying they used DNA to determine the remains were Warner’s. The FBI also matched the RV’s vehicle identification number to a registration belonging to Warner.
Congress will convene this week to hold votes on overriding President Trump’s veto of the annual defense authorization bill.
This week is the final week of the 116th Congress, as the 117th Congress is expected to be seated on Sunday, January 3, 2021 ― although lawmakers may still vote to move the first day of the new Congress back until Monday to avoid beginning the new session on a weekend.
