Trivia: Who was the first President to have a veto overridden by Congress?
The correct answer is John Tyler
So why is this answer correct? : Written into Article I, section 7 of the Constitution, the presidential veto system is an important dynamic of the balanced government branches envisioned by the Founding Fathers. Since George Washington’s first veto in 1792, Presidents have vetoed over 2,500 bills. In 1845, President John Tyler’s veto of a bill preventing him from authorizing new Coast Guard bases was the first to be overridden by a two-thirds vote of Congress.
