The U.S. Senate has passed a huge annual military budget. The United States passed a huge military budget when a new Cold War was being predicted in the world.
On Friday, the US Senate passed a 74.1 billion military budget. The budget bill was passed to fund war against the world’s major military powers.
The passage of the bill gives the government authority to implement Pentagon policy and military spending.
The Senate passed the budget bill with 84 votes. The 100-member Senate needed a two-thirds majority to pass the bill. In that case, the bill received more votes than needed.
Earlier this month, President Donald Trump threatened to veto the bill if the law protecting social media, such as Facebook and Twitter, was not completely repealed.
Trump is demanding that Section 230 of the Communications Dissent Act, a federal law, be repealed altogether. He claims the law poses a serious security risk to the United States.
