Large majority backs stronger Russian Federation sanctions

Large majority backs stronger Russian Federation sanctions

U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley said on Wednesday that her relationship with President Donald Trump was "perfect" and that he did not need to be anxious about Haley and Vice President Mike Pence running against him in 2020.

Haley issued a terse statement to Fox News, saying, "With all due respect, I don't get confused".

U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley is pushing back against a White House claim that she was confused when she said new sanctions against Russian Federation were imminent, releasing a pithy statement saying, "With all due respect, I don't get confused".

The Trump governing administration showed up early Sunday, in order to advise the Russian embassy in Washington, that the sanctions were certainly not imminent in contrast to what Haley declared, according to the publication.

White House officials said Trump has been impressed with Haley lately, particularly her remarks about Syria over the past week, and stressed Monday that the president holds her in high regard.

"You will see that Russian sanctions will be coming down", Haley said Sunday on CBS' "Face the Nation".

"Additional sanctions are under discussion but haven't been determined", Kudlow said Tuesday.

He said there was no confusion in the White House approach toward Moscow.

Privately, Trump was "annoyed" at the confusion, a senior administration official said, one of the rare instances in which Haley has drawn his ire.

The statement angered President Donald Trump, The New York Times reported.


"She got ahead of the curve", he insisted before offering, "She's done a great job, she's a very effective ambassador".

The confusion was met with the typical sequence of eyerolls across Washington, where some surmised the public dissonance between Haley and the White House was just another symbol of the Trump presidency's inconsistency on policy, especially when it comes to Russian Federation. "Secretary Mnuchin will be announcing those on Monday, if he hasn't already".

Sanctions would typically be announced by the Treasury secretary or the White House.

Reports of Trump's disagreement with Haley over new sanctions against Russia come amid a growing number of battles between the president and his administration over policy toward Putin and the Russians.

It gets even more pathetic, if you can believe it. If the U.S. sanctions are enacted, they will be the second such batch in just over a year against Syria's weapons of mass destruction programme.

"They were discussed but it was made a decision to hold off for a little while", that official said.

On Monday, a new memo went out from the NSC saying that additional sanctions were under consideration, but no decision had been made. Trump may, eventually, support the sanctions.

An internal White House quarrel over the timing of new Russian Federation sanctions played out in public when the new economic adviser suggested U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley was suffering from "momentary confusion" and Haley retorted: "With all due respect, I don't get confused".

"The President is the one that gave the directive", Sanders said.
