SOT, Sarah Huckabee Sanders, White House Press Secretary: «What McMaster actually said is that we've been very tough on Russia. He echoed the president's message that he said yesterday during the press conference with the Baltic leaders, that no one has been tougher on Russia than this president. What he also said was that other nations could do more and should do more. That's not different or in... Еще contrast to anything that we've said. We've continued to be tough on Russia, we're going to continue to be tough on Russia until we see a change in that. But at the same time as the president stated yesterday, it would be good for the world if there can be a relationship. We'll have to see what happens, a lot of that will be determined by the behavior of Russia.» White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders held a press briefing at the White House in Washington DC, Wednesday, commenting on US President Trump's plan to send troops to the US-Mexico border. «As you all know the President received a briefing yesterday on the administration's strategy to confront the growing threat of illegal immigration, drugs and violent gang members coming across our southern border.
