Trump unhappy with sanction bill: 'I am signing this bill for the sake of national unity

Today President Trump signed into law the “Countering America’s Adversaries Through Sanctions Act” which targets Russia, Iran, and North Korea, with much hesitation.

This is a direct result of Russia’s interference in the 2016 election, Russian aggression in Ukraine, and the Kremlin’s continued support for Syria’s President Bashar al-Assad.

The measure limits President Trump’s executive power and prevents the president from lifting the sanctions.

Trump deemed the measure “seriously flawed” because he says it directly impedes on his ability to negotiate with tough foreign actors on behalf of America, a strength the president believes Congress seriously lacks.

The president delivered a presidential statement as well as a constitutional argument against the law shortly after its passage stating that “despite its problems, I am signing this bill for the sake of national unity.”

Today on “Pat & Stu” the guys discussed the president’s unusual choice of words following the law’s passage.
