Cardin less concerned Trump will ease Russia sanctionsCheck The Source Here:https://goo.gl/bjO8TmPatriotT-Shrits: http://goo.gl/XgtvW8 Donate Here: https://goo.gl/IIMAA5 The top Democrat on the Senate Foreign Relations Committee says he’s no longer worried President Donald Trump will notch a quick deal with Russia to undo sanctions it faces for aggression in Ukraine.Sen. Ben Cardin introduced a bill in February with Sens. John McCain (R-Ariz.) and Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) making it harder for Trump to unilaterally lift sanctions on Russia put in place by the Obama administration. At the time, Cardin said, he considered the matter urgent because of Trump’s friendliness toward Moscow and wanted the bill taken up immediately. But Trump’s more critical rhetoric in recent weeks has reassured the Maryland Democrat that no quick agreement with Vladimir Putin is in the works.“I thought it was urgent at the time because of the language the president was using in regards to cutting a deal,” Cardin told reporters Wednesday. “I'm not as concerned today as I was three months ago. The president's language today gives no indication that there's anything in the works. I'd still like to see it advance, but it's not as urgent.” Read the entire story in Source, link in description.
