Message to Trump from Russia: New sanctions will do ‘DOUBLE DAMAGE’

A senior Russian senator, Alexei Pushkov, has warned US President Donald Trump that new sanctions against Russia will hurt Washington’s relations with Moscow and the EU:

“If Trump signs the sanctions bill, he will not calm down his enemies – they desire his impeachment. But he will inflict double damage – to relations with Russia and the European Union at the same time.”

Moreover,

“New sanctions against Russia will never become a success story for Trump’s administration – they will only put it at loggerheads with the EU and block any normalization of relations with Russia.”

Member of the Federation Council Defense and Security Committee Alexei Pushkov

This came soon after US Republicans and Democrats proposed a bill that would introduce additional sanctions on Russia and prevent any future easing of anti-Moscow restrictions by the US president.

The new anti-Russia proposals include individual sanctions for investing in Russian pipeline projects, especially the giant Gazprom’s Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline project.

The decision on the proposal will be made on Tuesday: after the House votes, it would also need to be signed off by the president.

Last Saturday, Russian President Vladimir Putin’s press secretary, Dmitry Peskov, said that Moscow takes an “extremely negative” view of the new developments.

Let’s hope President Trump gets Pushkov’s message and does not let the double damage happen and further destroy the Russian-American relations.

The weasels in the House and Senate are determined to get enough “yes” votes to make this bill veto-proof.
Question is, will the President be bold and honest enough to oppose it, even if he cannot veto it?

President Trump will sign the unconstitutional bill with a signing statement exempting him from enforcing it.

Presidents issue those kinds of signing statements, noting that Congress can’t pass unconstitutional legislation regardless of the vote margin.

Why won’t he just veto it altogether ?

THIS is upsetting – and I do not agree with the house or the senate…Our congress sucks. They lie. And I sure hope Trump realizes that they are going to bop him again. I want to see good relations between Russia and the USA.
