Will Trump challenge an overwhelming bipartisan majority?
In a phone interview with CNN’s New Day, White House Communications Director Anthony Scaramucci said Thursday that President Trump may veto a new sanctions bill targeting Russia. The veto threat comes after Senate leaders agreed to a deal Wednesday that would push the bill through the upper chamber and onto the president’s desk. Earlier in the week, the House of Representatives passed the bill with a whopping 419-3 majority.
And yet, despite unprecedented bipartisan Congressional support for tougher punitive measures against Russia, the White House is playing hardball, leaving open the possibility of a wholesale veto.
"He may sign the sanctions exactly the way they are, or he may veto the sanctions and negotiate an even tougher deal against the Russians," Scaramucci told CNN.
