Trump Intends to Sign Russia Sanctions Bill into Law

 It's official. President Donald Trump intends to sign legislation that places new sanctions on Russia and empowers Congress to block him from scaling back the penalties on Moscow in the future, the White House press secretary's office said Friday, according to Politico.

This is just terrible.

Trade advances peace and goodwill amongst nations, limiting trade increases the potential for hostilities.

"President Donald J. Trump read early drafts of the bill and negotiated regarding critical elements of it," the press secretary office's statement read. "He has now reviewed the final version and, based on its responsiveness to his negotiations, approves the bill and intends to sign."

The measure, which also places additional sanctions on North Korea and Iran, passed the Senate 98-2 and the House 419-3 this week after a series of delays and partisan squabbling on Capitol Hill and resistance from the White House.

Of note, the bill limits the President's ability to scale back sanctions without congressional approval.

  1. It would be difficult to find a more reprehensible group of people in this country than those in the US Congress.

    I only hope that should they need to seek refuge in the underground bunkers for which we were forced to pay that the bunkers are up to the usual standards we've come to expect with government construction projects.

    He plans to grab the Russians by the p...y, apparently.

  3. Hey, I'm your friend until I'm not; then I'll fold like a three egg pudding. JK Vlad, I'll screw you UGELY!

    1. If Trump doesn't sign this congress will just override his veto and make him look powerless. Unfortunately Trump is in a no-win situation.
