Maxine Waters: Trump Opposes Russia Sanctions Because He Wants Putin to ‘Drill into the Arctic’
WATERS: "My staff has just gone through that with me. And I'm looking to see what we can do to repeal some of the language that was informs sanctions bill that gives him the authority to wave or not to wave. Obviously he is not going to move forward with those sanctions if he can get away with it. He's too tied into Putin and I do believe that in addition to several ways that we're looking at, you know, causing those sanctions to take place on Russia. I have always believed that he never wanted sanctions, he wanted to lift those sanctions that we already have. So that Putin can drill into the arctic and it's all about the oil and it's all about money, so I don't trust him, I don't think that he would ever move to carry out the sanctions that we have voted on and so I'm not just disappointed, it's all that I have expected of him. I don't expect very much of him."
