Trump promised to veto the draft military budget


US President Donald Trump has pledged to veto the draft military budget for fiscal 2021 if the document contains a section on exonerating Internet companies.

“Section 230, a gift to tech companies, is a serious threat to national security and electoral integrity,” Trump said on Twitter. “If this dangerous and dishonest section is not completely removed from the military budget, I will unconditionally veto it when it comes to my table.”

Section 230 of the Communications Ethics Act protects technology companies from legal action for posting, deleting, or otherwise moderating User Content.
