Rounds Statement on President Trump Signing Sanctions Bill Into Law

WASHINGTON—U.S. Sen. Mike Rounds (R-S.D.) today made the following statement to commend President Trump for signing into law theCountering America’s Adversaries Through Sanctions Act, a set of expanded sanctions against Russia, Iran and North Korea:

“Russia, Iran and North Korea continue to express aggressive, destabilizing behaviors that put our regional allies and our own national security at risk. Iran is one of the world’s largest state sponsors of terrorism, North Korea continues to pursue a nuclear missile that could reach our shores and Russia has shown aggression in Ukraine, Syria and cyberspace. By imposing strong, enforceable sanctions against these nations, we are sending a strong message that the U.S. will not tolerate these acts of aggression. I thank President Trump for signing these sanctions into law today.”

The Countering America’s Adversaries Through Sanctions Act passed the Senate with bipartisan support last week.

    He didn’t tell us that his “glorious leader” was against the sanctions. He didn’t tell us that he and his put in restrictions to prevent “glorious leader” from removing them to please “glorious leaders” boss in Russia.

    A (R) congress has to restrict their own prez from doing something to help the Russians…Mattis and Kelly have agreed that one of them will always be in D.C. to prevent trump from doing something stupid…… “You people” wanted it—-you got it—- you own it and all the damage it does and has done….
