Russia posits that Donald trump is Completely Impotent

Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev
Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev has said that the United States has declared a full-scale trade war against Russia with the enactment of a new sanctions bill and that "the hope of improving our relations with the new U.S. administration has come to an end." Medvedev was reacting to the signing of the bill by U.S. President Donald Trump. 

The bill was approved overwhelmingly late in July 2017 by the U.S. Congress despite the Trump administration calling on lawmakers to grant the White House "flexibility" in dealing with Russia. The Trump administration demonstrated "complete impotence, in the most humiliating manner, transferring executive powers to Congress," said Medvedev.


"The U.S. establishment completely outplayed Trump. The president is not happy with the new sanctions, but he can not refuse to sign the law," said the Russian prime minister. According to him, the interests of U.S. businesses are almost ignored, and anti-Russian hysteria has become a key part of U.S. foreign and domestic policy. The sanction regime is codified and will last for decades as the new law allows the Congress to limit the president's power to lift anti-Russian measures, said Medvedev.

"Therefore, the relationship between Russia and the United States will be extremely tense, regardless of the composition of the Congress or the personality of the president," he said. The Russian Foreign Ministry has also expressed regret over the enactment of the bill and blasted the new sanctions as "short-sighted and even dangerous." 

Nevertheless, the ministry said in a statement that Russia remains open to cooperation with the United States in various areas, including on the settlement of regional conflicts.
