Trump Contradicts Tillerson On Russian Sanctions

The Hill reports:

President Trump on Sunday said he did not discuss new U.S. sanctions against Moscow with Russian President Vladimir Putin, contradicting Secretary of State Rex Tillerson.

“Sanctions were not discussed at my meeting with President Putin. Nothing will be done until the Ukrainian & Syrian problems are solved!” Trump tweeted Sunday morning.

Tillerson, however, told reporters Friday that Trump told Putin that U.S. lawmakers were pushing for new sanctions on Russia, according to the Washington Post.

The first meeting between Trump and Putin took place last Friday with only six people in the room: Trump, Putin, Tillerson, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov and two translators.
