Trump orders postponing introduction of new anti-Russian sanctions
On Monday, White House spokesperson Sarah Huckabee Sanders said Washington is considering new anti-Russia sanctions in response to the alleged chemical weapons attack in the Syrian town of Douma, but added that no decision had been made.
The future punitive measures against Moscow were announced by US envoy to the United Nations Nikki Haley on Sunday, who said Washington was readying to sanction Moscow for supporting the Syrian government.
She said that the restrictions would hit the companies that are allegedly "dealing with equipment related to Assad and any chemical weapons use."
According to sources, Trump was "upset" that the sanctions were presented, as he "was not yet comfortable executing them."
