WASHINGTON — President Trump still intends to veto the veto-proof $740 billion annual defense spending bill passed by Congress last week, White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany said Tuesday.

Trump is unhappy with two provisions renaming military bases honoring Confederate soldiers and slowing the withdrawal of troop levels in Afghanistan, McEnany told reporters in the White House briefing room.

The president also wanted a repeal of Section 230 liability protections for social media giants attached to the bill as part of his administration’s ongoing war with Twitter and Facebook over what he says is their anti-conservative bias.

“He still does plan to veto the NDAA [National Defense Authorization Act]. I don’t have a timeline for you on that but he does plan to veto it,” McEnany said.

“He wants to make every effort to protect our military men and women and will prioritize military funding and the big omnibus bill, but he also has other important priorities and, I should say, problems with the NDAA beyond just the absence of Section 230 repeal,” she said.
