Trump is owned by the Russians. Isn't electing Trump exactly the same as electing Sergey Kislyac?

    No, Trump is harmful for working Americans and our government, Kislyac just doesn't like our government.

    President Donald Trump reluctantly approved new sanctions against Russia on August 2 after Congress sent him a bill with strong bipartisan backing, but the administration still hasn't implemented them.

    What these sanctions are about:

    The sanctions are meant to punish Russia for its interference in the 2016 US election, its human rights violations, its annexation of Crimea and its military operations in eastern Ukraine. The bill also covers sanctions against Iran and North Korea.

    So why haven't sanctions been announced yet?

    The administration missed its first deadline on October 1 to issue guidance on which Russian entities in the military and intelligence sectors should be subject to sanctions. The State Department was almost a month late on that -- perhaps because Secretary of State Rex Tillerson had eliminated the office that oversees sanctions and moved all that work to the deputy director in his policy planning bureau -- but they finally named names on October 26.

    The back story:

    The bill was one of the first pieces of major legislation Congress sent Trump, and it served as a slap on the wrist: lawmakers gave themselves a new veto power to block the President from removing sanctions on Russia. US intelligence agencies had said it was their consensus view that Moscow attempted to interfere in the election, but Trump refused to acknowledge the possibility and urged a better US relationship with Russia. That made people uneasy.

    Trump blasted the bill as he signed it, issuing a statement that said it was, "seriously flawed -- particularly because it encroaches on the executive branch's authority to negotiate."

    Deadlines ahead

    Their next deadline is January 29, 2018 when the administration should have come out with the businesses and enterprises from various countries that have continued to do business with those Russian entities and which will face sanctions as a result.

    The administration is still on schedule, but it's taking a while, and critics are watching closely.

    What do critics say about the delay?

    On the Hill, Democrats say they're concerned that implementation is taking so long that the Russian entities could have time to create new subsidiaries that fly under the sanctions radar. Sen. Ben Cardin of Maryland, the senior Democrat on the Foreign Relations Committee, said Thursday that they'll be watching the administration's "implementation of the Russian sanction law that requires reports as early as next month, and we will be watching very closely to make sure they comply with the laws that we have passed."

    What's next?

    All eyes are on the administration's January 29 deadline to announce sanctions.

    No, we Russians didn't do anything.

    Source(s): It seems like you hate the fact that Trump is building a good relationship with Russia. Unlike Obama who couldn't even look Putin in the eyes.

    Trump’s potential unwillingness to defend NATO allies,

    support for Russia’s takeover of Crimea in Ukraine,

    and willingness to consider lifting sanctions against Russia.

    He has also praised Putin as a "strong leader."

    Trump certainly has conducted business in Russia or with Russian investments,

    Without his tax returns, however, we don’t know the full extent of his business dealings there.

    Trump has taken on advisers with clearer-cut connections to Russia.

    Mr Trump has been unfriendly and provocative and hostile toward Russia. He has not done anything to end sanctions. He has NATO running around on their border. He got Russians expelled from the Olympics. He interfered with Russian Syria operations by putting U.S. troops illegally there. He attacked Syria and Yemeni Houthis supported by Iran. And he expects Russia to help the U.S. deal with North Korea? Russia has been helping the U.S. intelligence around central Asia and the Middle East for years. The U.S. seems always afraid of Russian influence which is very limited in their own region. Why must U.S. control every inch of the globe?

    No, electing Trump is not the same as electing Kislyac because Sergi is much smarter than Trump.
