Trump has reportedly halted new sanctions against Russian Federation

Trump has reportedly halted new sanctions against Russian Federation

"You will see that Russian sanctions will be coming down".

The WH is reporting that Trump would not approve any additional sanctions without another triggering event by Russian Federation, and characterized Haley's comments as a misstatement.

That message appeared to tap the breaks on imminent punitive economic measures.

Haley made the remarks in an interview on CBS, saying the Treasury Department would announce the new sanctions and insisted the US has sent "a strong message" about the use of chemical weapons.

She added that Russian Federation is feeling the effects of United States actions including "the sanctions that are continuing to happen, which you'll see again on Monday".

On Sunday, US Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley said new sanctions would be announced on Monday by Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin.

President Donald Trump has halted the implementation of new Russian sanctions, just one day after United Nations Ambassador Nikki Haley said that new sanctions were coming, according to The Washington Post. Secretary Mnuchin will be announcing those on Monday if he hasn't already and they will go directly to any sort of companies that were dealing with equipment related to Assad and chemical weapons use.

The unbelievable story of Michael Cohen-and Sean Hannity
Fox News quickly pivoted away from coverage of the Cohen hearing and aired stories about Syria and Barbara Bush's illness. As Hannity's radio show began at 3 p.m., the host was nowhere to be heard.

"We wanted their friends Iran and Russian Federation to know that we meant business and that they were going to be feeling the pain from this as well".

It is not clear what has caused the apparent delay, but sanctions decisions are usually weeks if not months in the making.

"Ten days ago President Trump wanted the United States of America to withdraw from Syria".

Trump last week tweeted that USA relations with Russia were at their lowest point since the Cold War - and put the blame at the feet of special counsel Robert Mueller and his investigation into Russian election meddling and possible collusion with the president's campaign.

Trump reportedly lashed out at aides after the U.S. expelled 60 Russian diplomats last month, and he is also said to have told aides not to speak publicly about tough measures against Russia that he approves because he does not want to upset Putin.

However, the White House said Mr Trump still wants USA forces to withdraw from the region as soon as possible. "But be very clear, if we leave, when we leave, it will be because we know that everything is moving forward".
