Trump Says He's Open To Lifting Russia Sanctions

Wochit Headline News - Saturday, 14 January 2017
Though he plans to keep them for "at least a period of time," President-elect Donald Trump suggested Friday he is open to lifting sanctions on Russia. In an interview published Friday evening, he told the Wall Street Journal that he might do away with them if Russia helps the US battle terrorists or with other goals important to the US. In response to alleged Russian hacking during the election, the sanctions were implemented by the Obama administration last month. He said in the interview, "If you get along and if Russia is really helping us, why would anybody have sanctions if somebody's doing some really great things?"
