Trump recently signed Russia Bill then states it's "seriously flawed" shortly after.

According to CNN, Trump recently signed a bill early Wednesday morning that puts sanctions against Russia and stops the president’s ability to ease up on sanctions that are in place against Russia. Around 11 AM this morning, the White House noted that the bill features “a number of clearly unconstitutional provisions” that will “displace the President’s exclusive constitutional authority to recognize foreign governments, including their territorial bounds.”

Despite signing the bill, Trump made it clear that he did not agree with it, calling the bill “seriously flawed.” Via a statement issued, Trump said “Still, the bill remains seriously flawed -- particularly because it encroaches on the executive branch's authority to negotiate. Congress could not even negotiate a health care bill after seven years of talking. By limiting the executive's flexibility, this bill makes it harder for the United States to strike good deals for the American people, and will drive China, Russia, and North Korea much closer together."
