President-elect Donald Trump suggested Friday that he would be open to ending U.S. sanctions against Russia.
Trump said that “at least for a period of time,” he would maintain the sanctions on Russia imposed by President Barack Obama last month.
But Trump also suggested that he would lift the sanctions if Russia works with the U.S. on key issues, including combating terrorism. Trump made the comments in an hourlong interview with the Wall Street Journal.
“If you get along and if Russia is really helping us, why would anybody have sanctions if somebody’s doing some really great things?” Trump told the Journal.
