Trump Ramps Up Sanctions Against Russia

President Trump’s State Department has released a new round of sanctions against Russia over chemical weapons use. The Washington Examiner reports:

President Trump is imposing new sanctions on Russia in response to the use of a chemical weapon in an assassination attempt that took place on British soil, the State Department announced Wednesday.

“[T]he United States, on Aug. 6, 2018, determined under the Chemical and Biological Weapons Control and Warfare Elimination Act of 1991 (CBW Act) that the Government of the Russian Federation has used chemical or biological weapons in violation of international law or has used lethal chemical or biological weapons against its own nationals,” State Department spokeswoman Heather Nauert said in an afternoon bulletin.

Trump’s decision restricts Russia’s access to U.S. government financing and foreign aid, and bans the export of national security technology to Russia. The decision sets the table for a more aggressive round of sanctions in November, including moves to desire Russia of international financing and to downgrade diplomatic relations.

“These goods are currently subject to a case-by-case license determination,” a senior State Department official told reporters Wednesday. “When these sanctions go into effect, we will be presumptively denying these applications.”

The Russian government is not happy about these developments.

If somebody does not stand up for law and order here and internationality then the world will sink into chaos. Like the democrats and Obama have brought to our govt in DC. If the democrats win in Nov thy will do what all tyrants do. Impose govt control of everybody and every thing. Take you freedoms and your guns away.

Going to disagree with all who believe Donald Trump is in anybody’s pocket. Donald is Alpha Male, who has been a leader all of his life, starting at age 5. He is adaptable, pragmatic, and sees problems, but also finds solutions. He had contributed to Republicans and Democrats, and to chaitaable organizations all of his life. Connects well with working people of any trade or work, even after he became very wealthy. Entire family have learned that trait, also. He meets others as person to person, and treats all equally. I started collecting information on him, many years ago, and wife and I waited 40 plus years for his family to age, and for him to realize he had to step forward. John McCain wilted and quit, when Candy Crowley attacked him during debates, and Mitt Romney did the same, when Meghan Kelly did a number on him. Note to all: Donald Trump met all GOP candidates and beat them severely, with their own rhetoric, and also did in Hillary Clinton, when she had bought her place, and was fed the questions and practiced them. But Donald was saying what my wife and I, and our peers was saying and thinking for far too long. As President, he has not disappointed us, and we have not missed any votes since 1958, but do regret one vote in 1990 era. Made us more careful from then. Do better job of researching for ourselves, and not listening to debates. Never learned anything of value in those.

I believe many (most) people like Trumps policies, yet many (most) dislike his un-Presidential side. Tweeting bypasses the Fake News, but DO IT IN A PRESIDENTIAL MANNER. Your (mr. President) rough edges are the only reason the Dems have any chance of gaining in Nov. Smooth your rhetoric, and glide to a landslide in Nov.

There are people in this Nation that actually make me sick: They have been fed, all their lives that what they hear on TV/Radio etc is true just becuase the Media says so! They actually think that beause a man says something that may Hurt their feelings and yet is the TRUTH, that he shouldn’t say what he says! There are a few reasons why I like and voted for Donald Trump! 1 because the man does NOT mince words! He says what he says and needs to say and whether it hurts or not, it must be said and DONE, and he gets things done! I’m no fool though. I know D.T. is only a man and a base man at that, and a Billionaire, but, the man does NOT talk in circles and does NOT shy away from controversy! The man is NOT a meely mouth crap talker talking to get people to hear what he says! 2. This man has supported ISRAEL all the way and THAT, in itself has been a blessing, JUST AS GOD said it would! SEE Genesis 12:2-3 KJV Maybe you don’t like the man, and NO he is not some miracle worker etc and i don’t worship the man, Exodus 34:14 KJV. I do honor the man as in 1 Tim 2:1-3 KJV I pray fro this man, as I did the last (Illegal)man. So, you ought to all do the same. There is a reason why the man is in that office, and as far as I know, he is doing the job he was appointed to do! I ask you to SEE “HOLY GROUND” by Dr. William P.Grady (the true history of Israel) The examples I send are Harry Truman and James Forrestal (U.S. Sec of Defense) The first supported Israel and the last died in shame NOT doing so! See Pages 448-451 for the complete story! I SUPPORT Donald Trump, because HE supports Israel! God is NOT a man that He should lie..Numbers 23:19 KJV

” including moves to desire Russia of international financing and to downgrade diplomatic relations.” The Press strikes again… I would think they wanted “deprive” and not “desire”

Does Nobody use spell check and/or proof-reading anymore?
