 Defying Trump's veto, the U.S. Congress has voted to greenlight a 740.5-billion-dollar defense policy bill.

 
News Hour has more.
 
The Republican-led Senate voted 81 to 13 on Friday to join the Democrats-controlled House in overriding Trump's veto, making the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) for fiscal year 2021 a law. 
 
It is the first time one of Trump's vetoes has been surmounted.
The president vetoed last week the NDAA, which authorizes appropriations through September 2021 and sets forth policies for the Pentagon's programs and activities. He accused the bill fails to include critical national security measures and contradicts his administration's America First policy.
