BREAKING: Obama Threatens to DEFUND the U.S. Military Unless America Meets This Demand
President Barack Obama demonstrated on Monday just how much he wants to destroy the American military by threatening to veto the National Defense Authorization Act if the federal prison at Guantanamo Bay is not closed down.
Josh Earnest, White House press secretary, said the bill would be vetoed because of the “irresponsible way that it funds our national defense priorities, but also because of the efforts to prevent the closure (of) the prison at Guantanamo Bay,” according to Breitbart.
Earnest also said Democrats would support Obama’s veto.
The NDAA has been in operation for five decades, and it funds the military through a workaround measure that includes sequestration cuts of defense funding. Democrats are now saying the workaround isn’t enough and more money is needed.
The timing for this bill is perfect for Obama to inject his agenda regarding Guantanamo Bay.
