Reagan Vetoes Sanctions On South Africa | News

WASHINGTON--President Reagan, setting the stage for one of the toughest foreign policy showdowns in his administration, yesterday vetoed legislation imposing new economic sanctions against the white-minority government of South Africa.

Deserted by many of his usual allies, Reagan does not have enough votes now to prevent the House and Senate from overriding his veto, according to the White House and Republican vote-counters in Congress.

Playing for time to find supporters, the White House delayed announcement of the veto until after the House quit work for the week, thus preventing a quick override vote in the Democratic-controlled chamber.

------------------------------------------------

Reagan was eventually vetoed despite every right wing trick. It was Republican support up to that point that kept white racists in control in South Africa. The country was suffering from sanctions from the entire rest of the world, but GOP and right wing money and goods flowed from this country to South Africa enabling those in power to continue Apartheid for much longer than should have been possible.
