Donald Trump to keep Russia sanctions in place, might strengthen them

May 26, 2017

  The whole theory swirling around the Russia election collusion allegations is pretty simple: Donald Trump colluded with the Russians to help him get elected in return for loosening Barack Obama’s sanctions on Russia.

  However, it is now being reported by Bloomberg that Gary Cohn told reporters the sanctions will remain in place and that Donald Trump might even strengthen them. Here is more:

President Donald Trump will maintain Obama-era sanctions against Russia over its role in the Ukraine conflict and may even strengthen them, his top economic adviser said.

“We’re not lowering our sanctions on Russia,” White House National Economic Council director Gary Cohn told reporters Friday in Taormina, Sicily. “If anything, we would probably look to get tougher on Russia.”

His comments mark the strongest statement yet from the Trump administration that sanctions placed by the U.S. on Russia after its military incursion into Ukraine in 2014 will remain in place until Moscow heeds an international accord to resolve the conflict.

  If this is true it would certainly blow a hole in the whole conspiracy theory however the Democrats will probably make the case that this somehow proves there was collusion between the candidate and Russia and the only reason why he is doing this is to provide cover now that his nefarious plot has been uncovered. He simply cannot win with the left…

  2. May 27, 2017 12:29 pm that’s what came to my mind too Steve, it doesn’t matter what Pres. Trump does, the left will make it into their own perverted interpretation, void of substance and truth. I don’t see why the sanctions were put in place anyway, except for the fact that Russia was ‘placing obstacles in the way’ of Bari using the US military for destroying the Syrian Gov.– America has been ‘used to do’ for so many others, on the list to take down for the One World Agenda Elites – World Bankers.
    “Powerful elites are using the credibility of the US Intelligence agencies to demonize Russia and prepare the country for war. This is the real meaning of the “Russia hacking” story which, as yet, has not produced any hard evidence of Russian complicity.”
    Why don’t the Dem*s talk about the hacking they did for Hilly to win over Bernie?
    “The response across the Democratic neocon spectrum, from Anne Applebaum at the Washington Post to red-baiting Paul Krugman and the Sunday talk shows it was suggested that behind the Wikileaks to release DNC e-mails was a Russian plot to help elect Trump as their agent. Former US ambassador to Russia Michael McFaul lent his tattered reputation to claim that Putin must have sponsored the hackers who exposed the DNC dirty tricks against Bernie.

      So far there is quite a bit of hearsay based on anonymous sources but the latest story about Kushner trying to set up a backchannel with Russia is troubling. I cannot help but think how Romney was ridiculed by the left for calling Russia America’s number one geo-political enemy and now all they talk about is Russia.

        Yes, difficult to know Steve since the ‘sources’ tend to be brought and paid for by those trying to oust PDT. When doing a search about it, I see all the libtart news affiliates using that exact phasing. Anytime they goes nuts on something like this it’s a ploy and ‘scripted’. Hilly and Bari were doing that and more while in office, so ‘does it really mean anything?’ Razzmatazz.
        Meanwhile this is cute:

        Ivanka (sounds Russian to me 😊 Bulgarian, Czech, Slovak): “Congrats @GOPLeader on passing 13 bills in the House this week aimed at combating the human trafficking epidemic in our country and abroad.”
        Clintons have been making $$$$ off of this trafficking and drugs for decades, along with many others in the high political ranks.
