GOP Senators Warn Trump Against Lifting Russia Sanctions

April AlvarezJan 29, 2017

But even talk of lifting the sanctions on Russian Federation could revive the fight over the nation's hacks of Democratic organizations during the 2016 presidential campaign that Trump has sought to move past. Exit quotation from Trump himself, commenting at today's press conference with Theresa May: "As far as sanctions, it's very early to be talking about that".

Trump and Putin last spoke after the November 8 election, when Putin called to congratulate Trump on his victory. "He won't be doing it".

There is no mention in the Kremlin statement of whether they discussed the issue of US sanctions on Russian Federation.

Putin's personal spokesman hinted the pair may arrange to meet in person - which would undo eight years of frosty relations between the United States and Russian Federation under Barack Obama. "Because that's the real sickness, you know the whole ISIS thing is the real sickness". Trump told the newspaper.

Economy grew just 1.9 percent in fourth quarter
Widening trade deficits sliced off 1.7% from GDP growth in the 4Q after adding 0.85% in the 3Q. That compares unfavorably to 2.6 percent in 2015 and 2.4 percent in 2014.

Those remarks sparked controversy and pushback from Republican Sen.

"When it comes to Russia's efforts to undermine democracy in our backyard and throughout the world, enough is enough", said South Carolina Lindsey Graham, a cosponsor of the legislation.

The two senators have said they will seek tougher sanctions.

Some members of Trump's own party warned him ahead of his call with Putin not to abandon sanctions recently imposed on Russian Federation by former President Barack Obama in retaliation for alleged meddling in the 2016 election. "But Russia's hurting very badly right now because of sanctions, but I think something can happen that a lot of people are gonna benefit".

Tommy Fleetwood beats Dustin Johnson to HSBC Championship by a shot
But Fleetwood came into the tournament in decent form with 10 top-20 finishes in 12 events stretching back to September. Open champion Dustin Johnson, who hit an eagle on the last, and 2014 Abu Dhabi victor , Pablo Larrazabal of Spain.

But there was no immediate word from the White House or the Kremlin about the topics that were discussed by Trump and Putin.

Portman, who endorsed Trump for president but withdrew his support later in the campaign, warned against the warming relationship between Russian Federation and the United States. On Saturday, Trump will also take a call with German chancellor Angela Merkel, the most prominent member and advocate of the European Union, which Trump has dismissed, along with North Atlantic Treaty Organisation, as obsolete.

The Kremlin has applauded Mr Trump's promises to mend ties with Moscow, which have plunged to post-Cold War lows over the Ukrainian crisis, the war in Syria and allegations of Russian meddling in the USA elections. There should be no reason for the U.S.to add an extra pot-sweetener to either deal by rolling back sanctions that had nothing to do with nukes or Syria to begin with.
