Trump: US-Russia relationship is at ‘all-time, very dangerous low,’ blames Congress
The President tweeted his disapproval about the sanctions, even though he signed the Bill into effect
The relationship between the United States and Russia appears to be hitting rockier ground, according to President Donald Trump.
The President tweeted Thursday that the U.S.-Russia relationship “is at an all-time and very dangerous low,” and that “you can thank Congress, the same people that can’t even give us [healthcare]!”
Trump on Wednesday signed off on a bill that sanctions Russia, Iran and North Korea.
While he signed he, Trump did not like it – he said the bill was “seriously flawed” and “improperly encroaches on executive power, disadvantages American companies, and hurts the interests of our European allies.”
Russian Prime Minsiter Dmitry Medvedev lashed out at Trump and the U.S. on Facebook.
“The U.S. President’s signing of the package of new sanctions against Russia will have a few consequences,” he wrote. “First, it ends hopes for improving our relations with the new U.S. administration. Second, it is a declaration of a full-fledged economic war on Russia. Third, the Trump administration has shown its total weakness by handing over executive power to Congress in the most humiliating way. This changes the power balance in U.S. political circles.”
“What does it mean for them? The U.S. establishment fully outwitted Trump,” he added. “The President is not happy about the new sanctions, yet he could not but sign the bill.”
