President Donald Trump will examine whether a bill toughening sanctions on Russia is offering the “best deal” for the American people, White House spokeswoman Sarah Sanders said on Monday.
“He’s going to study that legislation and see what the final product looks like,” Sanders told reporters during a briefing on Air Force One, when asked whether Trump would support the legislation.
Sanders also said US Attorney General Jeff Sessions was at the White House on Monday but did not meet with President Donald Trump, who referred to him in a tweet as “beleaguered” earlier in the day.
Sanders reiterated that Trump was frustrated with Sessions for recusing himself from the Justice Department’s Russia investigation. Sessions said last week he loved his job and planned to continue serving.
Health and Human Services Secretary Tom Price participated in the press gaggle aboard Air Force One and said Republicans “look forward to having at least 50 votes” in the Senate when it votes as early as Tuesday on moving ahead with a healthcare bill that aims to repeal Obamacare, President Barack Obama’s signature healthcare law that Trump vowed to replace during his campaign.
