Trump walks back plan for more sanctions on Russia

WSJ reports

The WSJ is reporting that Pres. Trump is walking back plans for more economic sanctions on Russia.  

That decision ran counter to US Ambassador to the UN, Nikki Haleys comments on Sunday. At the time, she said that US would announce on Monday, sanctions on Russian companies behind the equipment related to Syria’s Assad’s chemical weapons attack.  

The WH is reporting that Trump would not approve any additional sanctions without another triggering event by Russia, and characterized Haley’s comments as a misstatement.
