Trump Disrespectfully Calls Out Congress In Latest Statement

President Trump took some shots at Congress in a surprising move on Wednesday. Trump released a statement on his signing of the “Countering America’s Adversaries Through Sanctions Act.”

The act “enacts new sanctions on Iran, North Korea, and Russia.”

Trump explains the reason for signing the act, stating, “I favor tough measures to punish and deter bad behavior by the rogue regimes in Tehran and Pyongyang. I also support making clear that America will not tolerate interference in our democratic process, and that we will side with our allies and friends against Russian subversion and destabilization.”

Trump then called out Congress, writing, “the bill remains seriously flawed – particularly because it encroaches on the executive branch’s authority to negotiate. Congress could not even negotiate a healthcare bill after seven years of talking.”

Trump singled out Congress again at the end of his statement, claiming, “I built a truly great company worth many billions of dollars. That is a big part of the reason I was elected. As President, I can make far better deals with foreign countries than Congress.”

Trump admitted the bill had problems, but said, “I am signing this bill for the sake of national unity. It represents the will of the American people to see Russia take steps to improve relations with the United States. We hope there will be cooperation between our two countries on major global issues so that these sanctions will no longer be necessary.”
