How to use veto in a sentence?

  1. Marco Rubio:

    He talks tough on some of these issues. For example, he was going to carpet bomb ISIS. But the only budget he's ever voted for in his time in the Senate is a budget that cut defense spending by more than Barack Obama proposes we cut it, he voted against the Defense Authorization Act every year that it came up. And I assume that if he voted against it, he would veto it as president.

  2. John Hoeven:

    We may not have enough to overcome a veto, so it may be a two-step process.

  3. Nigel Farage:

    The Macron agenda -- more money, more taxation, more military power, foreign policy without national veto -- everything Macron is talking about runs into a headlong collision with the way the peoples of Europe are feeling.

  4. Charles Krauthammer:

    It’s win win. If the president vetoes it, it proves what in fact the president actually said himself in the same interview, one of the reasons he did not have to veto, as he said himself, Harry Reid blocked so much in the senate that he did not like. So in fact, this is the way for republicans to retroactively reshape their image.

  5. Nancy Pelosi:

    Should the president threaten a veto, the votes will be here in the House to sustain it.
