The U.S. House of Representatives has overwhelmingly passed an annual defence spending bill in spite of a veto threat from President Donald Trump.
The National Defence Authorisation Act (NDAA) passed in a 335-78 vote with broad bipartisan support.
The bill will now go to the Senate for a second vote before arriving at Trump’s desk.
Lawmakers would need a two-third majority in both the House and Senate to overturn a presidential veto. (dpa/NAN)
