Putin ready to meet Trump - Russia

US Ambassador Says There'll Be New Sanctions Against Russian Companies Nikki Haley warns US chemical weapons attack 'could easily happen' here
Ellis Copeland | 22 April, 2018, 03:00

Kudlow said of Haley on Tuesday: "She's doing a great job, she's a very effective ambassador". "We had the moral obligations, we had promised not to do it some 10 years ago, I think, upon the request of our known partners".

On Tuesday, following Kudlow's remark that she must have been confused, Haley said in a statement to Fox News: "With all due respect, I don't get confused".

"The ambassador got out ahead of things this time", the senior administration official, who deals with the issue, told Reuters on condition of anonymity.

In the second, he left his United Nations ambassador to dangle while he backed away from a promise she made about Russian Federation sanctions on national TV. For good measure, he said that "there might have been some momentary confusion".

The Kremlin is still coming to grips with the economic impact of the most punitive penalties the USA has imposed since first sanctioning Russian Federation four years ago, over the conflict in Ukraine.

The two officials, who were not authorized to discuss private administration deliberations publicly and spoke on condition of anonymity, said Haley had misspoken when she said on CBS' "Face the Nation" that Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin would announce the sanctions Monday "if he hasn't already".

"We are considering additional sanctions on Russian Federation and a decision will be made in the near future", Sanders said in a statement. "The policy was changed and she wasn't told about it, so she was in a box".

Briefing reporters at president Donald Trump's Mar-a-Lago estate in Florida, Kudlow said Haley apparently got confused on the issue of imposing fresh sanctions on Russian Federation. Over the next 36 hours, officials began to delve deeper into the proposed sanctions and chose to hold off on anything imminent, but Haley was unaware, the officials said. The Kremlin complained about the new sanctions, calling them "international economic raiding". Haley rejected the notion that she had been "confused", and Kudlow later apologized for his comments.

That independence from the political establishment is what drew Trump to Haley despite the fact that she was one of his loudest critics during the campaign. Totally wrong."As it turns out, she was basically following what she thought was policy".

The lower house of the Russian parliament introduced a bill on Friday that could restrict a variety of imports and exports from the United States and other countries sanctioning Russia.

"I don't think that it can be done quickly though, considering what happened and what's now going on with the Iranian nuclear program ..."

Or, of course, you could take the hardcore Russiagate-conspiracist line and believe that Putin dialed up Trump after he heard Haley mention sanctions, warned him to back off or else the kompromat would emerge, and suddenly sanctions were gone lickety split.

"With the media, no matter what I did, it's never tough enough, because that's the narrative", Trump said.
