Senate passes defense bill with provision to change names of Confederate bases

The Senate passed Thursday a defense policy bill that Trump has threatened to veto over a provision removing Confederate names from military bases. The National Defense Authorization Act was passed by a veto-proof majority of 86-14. The House earlier passed its own version of the bill – also by a veto-proof margin. Both chambers must now hash out a unified version of the bill and pass it again.
