“The White House has walked back a plan to impose new sanctions on Russia over its support for the Bashar al-Assad regime following the recent chemical weapons attack in Syria. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley had announced over the weekend that the penalties would be unveiled today. According to the Washington Post, there had been internal confusion in the White House over the plan, and after Haley spoke, Trump “conferred with his national security advisers … and told them he was upset the sanctions were being officially rolled out because he was not yet comfortable executing them.”

This fits into what’s become a well-established pattern of the president resisting his own administration’s moves to take a hard line on Russia. Just this weekend, the Post reported that the president had been furious last month about the United States’ expulsion of 60 Russian diplomats over the poisoning of an ex-spy in England. Trump had signed off on the plan but apparently hadn’t realized the U.S. would be expelling far more than other countries did. “There were curse words,” one official said, “a lot of curse words.” Given the ongoing investigation into Russia’s role in his election, all this has raised questions about the president’s real motives.”*
