President Donald Trump Signs New Sanction Bill

Last week, a sanctions bill that punishes Russia for interfering with the election and imposes tougher sanctions on North Korea and Iran overwhelmingly passed Congress and the Senate.

The bill has bipartisan support and removes the president’s ability to lift the sanctions without congressional approval.

President Trump, who is attempting to repair relations with Russia opposed the bill but signed it anyway because it had enough votes to override the president’s veto.

Russia has since retaliated, by demanded the diplomatic staff in Russia be reduced by 755 diplomats. The European Union also disapproves of this bill saying that their might be retaliation if European companies are affected.
