President Trump remains ambivalent on new Russia sanctions
Contradictory statements from the White House are leading to confusion over whether or not new sanctions will be slapped on Russia.
The threat was originally made by Nikki Haley, who said that new sanctions would be announced early this week. The sanctions are a response to Russia’s indirect support for Syria’s chemical weapons program. Haley, speaking on NBC’s Face the Nation, said they would target companies providing the kind of equipment that could be used in the production of chemical weapons.
