Trump delays more sanctions against Russian Federation, overruling Haley

Trump delays more sanctions against Russian Federation, overruling Haley

Haley created a firestorm Sunday when she said the new sanctions would be imposed by the Treasury Department on Monday, when, in fact, no such announcement was planned, according to two officials familiar with the matter. Bush addressed sailors aboard a Navy ship in May 2003 alongside a "Mission Accomplished" banner, just weeks before it became apparent that Iraqis had organized an insurgency that would tie down US forces for years.

"The president has been clear that he's going to be tough on Russian Federation, but at the same time he'd still like to have a good relationship with them", Sanders said.

On Saturday, the United States, France and Britain attacked targets in Syria in retaliation for the alleged chemical attack in the Syrian city of Douma.

The country's foreign minister, Linas Linkevičius, said, "Only decisive action will make it possible to adjust the regime's policy and send a very clear message to those countries supporting Assad, Russia and Iran".

It appears that Trump will keep USA troops in Syria for as short a time as possible, which will undermine Israel's leverage with the Russians to limit Iran's involvement in Syria.

"With the political and diplomatic actions that we're taking now, we wanted their friends Iran and Russian Federation to know that we meant business and that they were going to be feeling the pain from this as well", she said.

Asked about Macron's comments, White House spokeswoman Sarah Huckabee Sanders stressed that Trump's plans for the region have not changed. The Pentagon said it gave no explicit warning.

Meanwhile, UK Prime Minister Theresa May on Saturday said the military strikes on Syria were not about regime change, but about sending a clear message that the worldwide community will not stand by and tolerate the use of chemical weapons.

She said troop withdrawal would come after three goals had been accomplished: defeating Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS) militants, ensuring chemical weapons will not be used, and maintaining the ability to watch Iran.

Russian Federation has military forces, including air defenses, in several areas of Syria to support Assad in his long war against anti-government rebels.

Washington has said it had proof that Syrian forces conducted a deadly chemical weapons attack on April 7, although a visit by chemical weapons inspectors to the suspected attack site was delayed on Monday.

Ms Haley, speaking on television, suggested there were no plans to pare down the U.S. presence in Syria any time soon. She said Assad was making it a normal practice and Russian Federation was busy covering it up.

"As a military spouse, I know that "mission accomplished" means you have one task now in front of you, and when it's completed, it is mission accomplished", Ms. Haley said.
