For Now, Trump Won't Impose Russian Sanctions

The proposed sanctions follow US -led airstrikes against Syria's chemical weapons capability and President Trump's promise that Assad and his allies, namely Moscow, would pay a "big price" for enabling the use of chemical weapons.

Russian Federation stocks, bonds and the ruble are among the worst performers this year amid investor concern the USA would impose sanctions for meddling in the election and refusing to condemn Syria for chemical weapons attacks.

Haley said Sunday on CBS News' Face the Nation that the Treasury Department would announce sanctions by Monday targeting "any sort of companies that were dealing with equipment related to Assad and chemical weapons use". "We are evaluating but nothing to announce right now", she said.

"We are considering additional sanctions on Russian Federation and a decision will be made in the near future", Sanders said in a statement.

Sources said President Trump was upset by Nikki Haley's announcement. They said Haley is one of the most disciplined and cautious members of the Cabinet, especially when it comes to her public appearances.

"We are considering additional sanctions on Russian Federation and a decision will be made in the near future", Huckabee Sanders said in a statement.

The official said Trump had expressed concern that if the administration did not proceed cautiously, tensions between Washington and Moscow - already at their worst since the Cold War - could escalate dangerously, the official said.

"The president has been clear that he's going to be tough on Russian Federation".

The walkback was a sharp rebuke for Haley, who has used her post in NY, outside Trump's Washington orbit, to talk tough to autocratic regimes. "She'll usually talk to the president without the rest of the White House and get her remarks cleared directly", said the administration official. "We've been very clear, in our actions, what we expect, and we hope that they'll have a change in their behaviour".

"You will see that Russian sanctions will be coming down".

May called for wider diplomatic efforts on the use of chemical weapons, "including the full range of political and economic levers", but stopped short of directly calling for sanctions against countries supplying the Assad regime with chemical weapon technologies.

"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.
