Sen. Chris Coons released a statement after incoming White House Communications Director Anthony Scaramucci told CNN on the morning of July 27 that President Donald Trump may veto sanctions on Russia that have bipartisan support in both chambers of Congress.

“He may veto the sanctions and negotiate an even tougher deal against the Russians,” Scaramucci said.

“The president would be making a grave mistake if he vetoes sanctions on Russia that have passed Congress with an overwhelming, veto-proof majority,” Coons said. “The idea that President Trump will negotiate tougher sanctions isn't credible.”
