Pocket veto, the killing of legislation by a chief executive through a failure to act within a specified period following the adjournment of the legislature. In the United States, if the president does not sign a bill within 10 days of its passage by Congress, it automatically becomes law. However, if Congress adjourns within the 10-day period and the president does not sign the bill, it is automatically vetoed, and the veto is absolute. The latter action is referred to as a pocket veto.

Qᴜɪᴇᴛ ᴡᴀʀʀɪᴏʀ @QuietWarrior1 · 16h VETO - separate all foreign support and start with direct payments and American focus. The fact that they wasted all this time compiling 6000 pages of pork shows their urgency while they shut down the economy. Focus on the United States !!!
