Trump signs 'flawed' Russia sanctions bill

President Trump has signed legislation imposing new sanctions on Russia into law. The U.S. Congress voted last week by overwhelming margins for sanctions to punish the Russian govt. over interference in the 2016 presidential election. Trump, who has made clear he wanted to improve relations with Russia, grudgingly accepted the new law, which also included Iran and North Korea. The bill had enough support to override a presidential veto.
