Trump had threatened to overturn the bill
The bill became the National Defense Authority Act (NDAA) after it was passed by the US Parliament. The bill was approved by members of the House of Representatives and the Senate (both chambers of Parliament). Now it had to be approved by the president, but President Trump had previously said the bill did not provide legal protection for social media companies. In such a situation, he will exercise his exclusive right to veto this bill.
