Senate overrides first Trump veto to uphold defense policy bill

WASHINGTON, Jan 1 (Reuters) - The Republican-controlled U.S. Senate overturned President Donald Trump's veto of a $740 billion defense bill on Friday, handing the Republican president the first veto defeat of his presidency weeks before he leaves office.

The Senate voted 81-13 to override Trump's veto two days before a new U.S. Congress is sworn into office on Sunday. Trump, who leaves office on Jan. 20, has had eight previous vetoes upheld. (Reporting by David Morgan; Editing by Sandra Maler)
