None of these congressional Republicans responded to a question about whether they will vote to override Trump’s veto. Although many are active on social media, none of them mentioned the NDAA in posts since the president’s decision became public.
Before Trump’s decision became public, Loeffler was non-committal about supporting an override. She said she would “certainly have a look at it, if that moment comes” but wanted to support the military.
There is disagreement among Republican senators about how to proceed. South Carolina U.S. Sen. Lindsey Graham said he will not vote to override Trump’s veto unless lawmakers approve an amendment that repeals the social media protections as the president asked.
On the other hand, the Republican chairman of the Senate’s Armed Forces Committee urged colleagues to move forward with making the bill law.
