President Trump today signed Russia Sanctions Bill

A White House official says President Donald Trump signed the Russia sanctions bill Wednesday morning. The sanctions are in response to Russia’s interference in the 2016 election.

On Sunday — before President Trump even signed the sanctions bill — President Vladimir Putin ordered the US to cut staff at its diplomatic mission by 755. That marked Moscow’s most aggressive move against Washington since the final years of the Cold War.

The Russian Foreign Ministry on Friday also demanded that the US cut its diplomatic staff in Russia and said it would seize two US diplomatic properties, a Moscow storage facility and a country house outside the capital.
