U.S. House passes $733-billion defense policy bill after Trump threatens vetoThe U.S. House of Representatives approved a $733-billion defense policy bill on Friday, defying President Donald Trump's veto threat by including provisions like a clampdown on funding for his planned wall on the border with Mexico. The House passed its version of the 2020 National Defense Authorization Act, or NDAA, by a 220 to 197 vote, without a single Republican voting in favor of the bill and after some of the most liberal Democrats opposed it as they pushed for a reduction in defense spending. Republican opposition to the bill sets the stage for a stiff fight over its provisions later this year that could threaten Congress' record of passing the NDAA annually for nearly six decades.
