Trump: US-Russia Relations Are At ‘Dangerous Low’

US President Donald Trump says his country’s relationship with Russia is at a “dangerous low”, amid a feud with Congress over new sanctions imposed against Moscow.

Mr Trump approved the measure on Wednesday, despite calling it “flawed”. Russia said the new sanctions were tantamount to declaring a “full-scale trade war”.

The law aims to punish Russia for its alleged meddling in the 2016 US elections and its actions in Ukraine.

Mr Trump had opposed the bill, which also contains measures against Iran and North Korea, as it constrains his ability to ease the sanctions without the consent of Congress.

The final line of his signing statement argued Congress was making a mistake, saying “as president, I can make far better deals with foreign countries than Congress”.
