US House of Representatives pass sanctions bill

US House of Representatives pass sanctions bill

he U.S. House of Representatives voted to slap more sanctions on Russia, Iran, and North Korea. The bill defies President Trumps objections to such legislation but was backed by Republicans and Democrats alike. The bill still needs to pass through the Senate before getting to the White House for Trump to sign or veto. The House-passed bill would codify into law existing sanctions on Russia. New sanctions would be imposed upon  Iran for their ballistic missile development. While North Koreas shipping industry and use of slave labor would be targeted for the countrys nuclear and missile programs. The White House says President Trump has not yet considered vetoing or signing the bill into law. 23 days ago
