WASHINGTON – Donald Trump Monday suspended the government’s strategy to reprimand Russia using economic sanctions for the support of Syrian administration of Bashar al-Assad, following the United States, France and the UK bombed Syria Saturday morning hours.
Washington Post, quoting government officials, mentioned it is “unlikely” that Trump is going to endorse sanctions in opposition to Russia right now, given that there has been absolutely no provocation coming from the Kremlin and, for that reason, the Administrator has ascertained that the existing strategy goes on “hold”.
Trump’s move counteracts what was actually publicized on Sunday through his emissary to the UN, Nikki Haley, who guaranteed that Monday the Treasury Department will impose sanctions for those Russian organizations and corporations which have helped to cultivate chemical substance weapons of the Al Assad governing administration.
According to the Post, following Haley’s reports on CBS, Trump called in his safety and security group to the White House to let them know, he really felt “upset” due to the fact that the sanctions outcomes had been formally revealed without having his approval.
The Trump governing administration showed up early Sunday, in order to advise the Russian embassy in Washington, that the sanctions were certainly not imminent in contrast to what Haley declared, according to the publication.
