Senator Hassan Statement on President Trump Signing Sanctions Bill

WASHINGTON – Senator Maggie Hassan released the following statement after President Trump signed legislation imposing further sanctions on Russia, Iran, and North Korea:

“This bipartisan legislation to impose further sanctions on Russia, Iran, and North Korea helps make clear to these regimes that we will hold them accountable for their actions. We cannot tolerate Russia’s shameless attacks on the foundation of our democracy, Iran’s ballistic missile program and support for terrorism, or North Korea’s destabilizing actions and nuclear program. Importantly, this legislation prevents the Executive Branch from taking unilateral action to weaken sanctions on Russia. While this legislation is an important step in the right direction, it must be followed by continued and urgent action to confront these threats to America and our allies.”
