The U.S. House of Representatives on Monday voted to override President Trump's veto of the National Defense Authorization Act.

If a sufficient number of lawmakers in the U.S. Senate follow suit so that both chambers of the nation's legislature vote to override a presidential veto, that would mark the first such veto override by Congress during Trump's tenure in office.

President Trump listed a number of issues in his veto message that played into his decision not to approve the legislation.
