Donald Trump signed sanctions against Russia


As reported by Bloomberg referring to a representative of the White House, president of the United States Donald Trump signed a bill on sanctions against Russia.

The report notes that Trump signed the document, but added a statement saying the administration will carry out the law but with reservations about its impact and the constitutionality of some provisions.

Trump has concerns about the bill, as it invades the president’s sphere of responsibility and can interfere with U.S. interaction with their partners.

The bill, adopted by the Congress last week, introduces sanctions against Russia, Iran and the North Korea.

This is the largest, and the toughest package of sanctions since early 2014. The document, in particular, includes a clause obliging the president to coordinate any mitigation or cancellation of sanctions with the lawmakers in advance.

In turn, U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson noted that Trump is “not delighted” with the new law.
