“President Donald J Trump read early drafts of the bill and negotiated regarding critical elements of it,” White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said in a statement. “He has now reviewed the final version and, based on its responsiveness to his negotiations, approves the bill and intends to sign it,” the message says.
As it was reported earlier, the US Senate has already signed the document. The bill includes both individual and sectorial sanctions against Russia, Iran, North Korea, and enshrines the already existing restrictions. It also deprives the US president of the right to cancel the sanctions without the approval from the Congress. Russia responded with reducing the diplomatic presence of the US in their country.
