Russia PM: new U.S. sanctions amount to ‘full-scale trade war’

MOSCOW (Reuters) – New sanctions on Russia which U.S. President Donald Trump has signed into law are tantamount to a “full-scale trade war”, Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev said on Wednesday.

Medvedev also said in a Facebook post that the sanctions showed the Trump administration was utterly powerless.

“The hope that our relations with the new American administration would improve is finished,” he wrote.

    Nah……Not true, the russkies are PO’d but when are they not….There will probably be give and take here but my bet is Trump can out think the Russians in this matter……

    We surely have the most inept congress in American history. It’s either time for a revolution or a lot of prayers that one of those Korean nukes strikes right smack dab in the middle of DC.

    Sanctions? A euphemism for embargo? An act of war?

    Would suggest that the idiots in Congress study the US actions of the late 30’s vs, Japan. Those ‘moral embargoes’ surely helped to provide peace.
    At least President Trump has been trying to ease our relationship with Russia, This idiotic act of Congress, tying his hands, is akin to pouring gasoline on a fire.

    Well to note that there is black and white evidence of US involvement in foreign elections, Need I list them, even a partial list? To date the Russian involvement in US elections is replete with only innuendo and unnamed sources. Oh yes, the information is ‘classified’.

    For another history ‘lesson’, there is William Randolph Hearst, a media baron, and the Spanish American War. Remember the Maine! Unproven Spanish sabotage? Or an unfortunate, self inflicted, accident.
