The Hill reports:
Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) on Thursday put blame on Russian President Vladimir Putin and his actions for the U.S.-Russia relationship. His comments come after Trump on Thursday morning put blame on Congress for the current relationship the U.S. has with Russia.
Besides imposing new sanctions on Russia in addition to Iran and North Korea, the bill would limit the president’s ability to return diplomatic compounds seized by the Obama administration in retaliation for Russian election meddling. After signing the legislation, Trump labeled parts of the bill an unconstitutional infringement upon his executive authority and his ability to negotiate with Moscow.
Our relationship with Russia is at an all-time & very dangerous low. You can thank Congress, the same people that can't even give us HCare!
