Marsha Blackburn Report: A Christmas Message

 

U.S. SenateWashington, D.C. – Amid unprecedented challenges, this year the warm and loving Tennessee spirit remained resilient. From Memphis to Mountain City, the frontline medical teams, grocery store clerks, and warehouse workers tirelessly served their communities.

President Donald Trump Vetos National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2021

 

The White HouseWashington, D.C. – I am returning, without my approval, H.R. 6395, the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2021 (the “Act”). My Administration recognizes the importance of the Act to our national security.

Unfortunately, the Act fails to include critical national security measures, includes provisions that fail to respect our veterans and our military’s history, and contradicts efforts by my Administration to put America first in our national security and foreign policy actions. It is a “gift” to China and Russia.
