As stated by the Director for legislative Affairs the White house mark Short, the administration of Donald trump supports new sanctions, but opposed that part of the bill, which gives the Congress much more significant powers in determining the policy of sanctions against Russia. If Donald trump will try to soften or lift sanctions against Moscow, according to the bill require a vote of Congress .
“We are concerned that the bill, as we believe, creates an unusual precedent for the delegation of the foreign policy of 535 members of Congress. It does not contain exceptions relating to national security issues, which have always been part of the sanctions in the past,” said Shorts.
