The House has voted 322-87 to override Trump’s veto of the defense spending bill, easily surpassing the two-thirds majority needed to overcome a veto.
Ahead of the vote, Texas Republican Congressman Mac Thornberry urged his colleagues to vote for “the exact same bill” they did before, saying “not a comma has changed.”
“I would only ask that as members vote, they put the best interests of the country first,” said Thornberry “There is no other consideration that should matter.”
