    "The sanctions were imposed under the provisions of the Chemical and Biological Weapons Control and Warfare Elimination Act of 1991, which mandates that once the government has determined that a country has used chemical or biological weapons in violation of international law or even made “substantial preparations” to do so, sanctions must be imposed." So Trump had no choice, otherwise there would be no new sanctions.

    "If something like a ban on bank operations or currency use follows, it will amount to a declaration of economic war," the Russian prime minister said. "And it will warrant a response with economic means, political means and, if necessary, other means. Our American friends should understand that." Sounds like the Chinese. The U.S. has equal or greater "means"... and they "should understand that". Stop stealing technology, annexing pieces of foreign countries and attempting to murder ex-pats residing in other countries.
