Trump vetoes defense budget with sanctions against Nord Stream 2

US President Donald Trump has pledged to veto the draft defense budget for 2021.

The politician wrote about this on his Twitter page.

The American leader explained this decision by the fact that the document was drawn up in such a way as to please China.

Note that this bill, among other things, involves the expansion of sanctions against the construction of the Russian Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline.

We will remind, on December 11, the US Senate supported the bill on the defense budget for the 2021 fiscal year, 75 members of the upper house of Congress voted for it.

The United States intends to stop the Nord Stream 2 project, through which natural gas from Russia must go to Europe along the bottom of the Baltic Sea, therefore, it will continue the policy of sanctions.
