Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev said U.S. President Donald Trump’s signing of a sanctions bill ends hopes of better relations with its Cold War adversary — as well as his own presidency.
In a Facebook post, written in both English and Russian, Medvedev outlined his thoughts, saying the bill was tantamount to “full-fledged economic war” and that the Trump administration “has shown its total weakness.”
The U.S. establishment fully outwitted Trump; the President is not happy about the new sanctions, yet he could not but sign the bill. The issue of new sanctions came about, primarily, as another way to knock Trump down a peg. New steps are to come, and they will ultimately aim to remove him from power.
Trump’s actions on Wednesday didn’t contradict Medvedev’s assertions that the president wasn’t happy with the legislation, which overwhelmingly passed both chambers of Congress. Trump issued two separate statements decrying the legislation, which he signed into law.

Medvedev said the sanctions against his country will remain for “decades” unless a “miracle” occurs.
As for the impact on Russia: “We will steadily continue our work on developing the economy and social sector, take efforts to substitute imports, and solve major national tasks, relying mostly on ourselves,” Medvedev said.
