Trump to sign bill for new sanctions on Russian Federation

Ellis Copeland | 29 July, 2017, 12:43

"We stand with patience in the face of the sanctions, but the time we will have to respond to this rudeness is closing", Putin added. Both were veto-proof numbers.

"We continue to support strong sanctions against those three countries, and we're going to wait and see what that final legislation looks like and make a decision at that point", she told reporters. Those sanctions also include punishments for Iran and North Korea.

Moscow said on Friday that the U.S. must reduce the staff at its embassy and consulates to 450, the same number Russian Federation is allowed to have in the US.

Speaking on an official visit to Finland, Putin said an ongoing joint naval exercise with China in the Baltic Sea was a threat to nobody.

He reminded, however, that "Russia has also many friends in the U.S".

"He may sign the sanctions exactly the way they are, or he may veto the sanctions and negotiate an even tougher deal against the Russians", Scaramucci said on CNN's "New Day," calling Trump's strategy on sanctions part of his "counterintuitive, counterpunching personality".

"This legislation finally holds Russian Federation accountable for its brazen attack on America's 2016 presidential election by imposing new sanctions, strengthening existing sanctions, and requiring congressional oversight of any attempt to ease sanctions on Russian Federation", said Senator John McCain, Chairman of the Senate Armed Services Committee. The wide, bipartisan support for the law means Congress could override a presidential veto.

"It's time to respond to Russia's attack on American democracy with strength, with resolve, with common goal, and with action", he said.

Some former officials said Russia could take other steps, such as seeking to help Russian-backed forces seize more ground in eastern Ukraine or to try to limit USA air operations in Syria, while others said any reaction might be more muted.

"I can not imagine anybody is seriously thinking about vetoing this bill", said Corker, chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee.

In response to the bill, Russian Federation announced that it was expelling American diplomats and seizing property, reports CNN. CNN has reported that the U.S. and Afghanistan have accused Russian Federation of arming the Taliban, a charge Moscow denied.

Republicans and Democrats have pushed for more sanctions partly as a response to conclusions by US intelligence agencies that the Kremlin interfered in the election. "I just don't think that's a good way to start off as president". The Kremlin has slammed the new United States bill as disappointing in terms of global law and trade relations.

Rejecting the bill would have further galvanized resistance against the President and deepened concerns about possible collusion between the Trump campaign and Russian Federation.

The administration has at times demonstrated a willingness to take a tougher tack against Russian Federation via sanctions. Goods produced by North Korea's forced labor would be prohibited from entering the United States, according to the bill.

Sens. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., and Rand Paul, R-Ky., voted against the sanctions bill.
