President Trump on Monday put the brakes on a preliminary plan to impose additional economic sanctions on Russia, walking back a Sunday announcement by U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley that the Kremlin had swiftly denounced as international economic raiding.

We really don't need Russia as an enemy right now, over something irrelevant.
In before the FReepers calling us Putin lovers
She should shut her warmongering trap.
Her needs to tell her to back to South Carolina. Never should have put her in that position in the first place. She’s a NeverTrumper!
Good for Trump. He is the president, not Nikki Haley,

Good for Trump.
This is the third time he’s had to tell her to shut up about Assad.
the most creative are Putin Poodle, Putin Fanboi, Putin Puke.
Sounds like the Swamp tried to roll Trump into doing this and he said no.
There is hope after all. Thank God.
Sounds like Trump is getting fed up with the Globalists trying to start WW3.
This is why I support President Trump and not the War Party.
Those bastards will lie, cheat, steal or do just about anything up to and including treason to support their precious wars.
Do not listen to them Mr President, we are with you — not the establishment.
You guys have obviously never heard of good cop bad cop!
Give a leg then take it away!
Look one way throw the other!
Read Sun Tzu.
I agree......it’s also a tightrope enough to walk now.....and I do believe Trump wants to have this one on one meeting ahead with Putin and vice-versa....that’s going to be an interesting meeting.
Time to put Nikki away, she’s become annoying.
