Washington, 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.

The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services announced Tennessee will receive more than $155 million to support COVID-19 Coronavirus testing and contact tracing across the state. Tennessee has done more testing than most states, but even more testing is key to ensuring folks are safe as they go back to work and back to school.
Washington, D.C. – PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP: We’re here today to provide an update on the unprecedented testing capacity developed by the United States — the most advanced and robust testing system anywhere in the world, by far. This afternoon, I’ll also announce new steps that we’re taking to make tests even more widely available.
To battle a virus, my administration marshaled every resource at our nation’s disposal: public, private, military, economic, scientific, and industrial — all at your disposal. We launched the largest manufacturing ramp-up since the Second World War. There’s been nothing like it since.
Washington, D.C. – President Donald J. Trump is working tirelessly to ensure that every State, territory, and tribe has the resources they need to meet their testing goals.
The Administration is sending $11 billion to help States, territories, and tribes meet the testing goals set out by their Governors and tribal leaders.
The Federal Government will be sending approximately 12 million swabs to States over the course of May to supplement private sector resources.
