President Trump backpedaled on a plan to issue additional sanctions against Russia Monday, directly contradicting an announcement by his United Nations ambassador, according to a report.

Nikki Haley, the US ambassador to the United Nations, said on Sunday that new sanctions, if they were ready, will be announced on Monday by US Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin.

White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said in a statement Monday: "We are considering additional sanctions on Russian Federation and a decision will be made in the near future".

Haley said the measures would target companies that supplied Damascus with equipment and other material related to chemical weapons, which killed more than 40 people in Douma on April 7 and prompted US-led airstrikes.

According to The Washington Post, citing unnamed sources in the USA administration, President Donald Trump has ordered to postpone the introduction of new sanctions after a comprehensive discussion with his aides.

The U.S. has previously expelled Russian diplomats and sanctioned Russia, a Syrian ally, for a suspected nerve-agent attack against a former spy in Britain and other actions.

Former FBI Director James Comey, who was sacked by Trump, also compared the USA leader to a mafia boss and said he was "morally unfit" to be president, stoking controversies. But it remained unclear how far he would go in trying to shape events in Syria, which has been racked by civil war for seven years. Night, the Treasury division declined to comment Sunday, but two officers informed the Associated Press no this announcement by Mnuchin was planned.

"The president has been clear that he's going to be tough on Russian Federation, but at the same time he'd still like to have a good relationship with them", Sanders said. "Often we don't know about them". Haley also said the U.S. would never go for a one-to-one talk with Assad as it did not consider him worthy of that.

Sanders said the US was still considering the sanctions, but they weren't coming on Monday. "I think everyone knows that we sent a strong message, and our hope is that they listen to us", she added.

The Russians were listening.

Russian lawmakers were crowing Friday that they were going to make the United States pay for already imposed sanctions, potentially by blocking American imports or U.S.
