Reading the press release, one can tell when the President felt the need to insert his venom about the law and about Congress.
- “The bill remains seriously flawed — particularly because it encroaches on the executive branch’s authority to negotiate. Congress could not even negotiate a health care bill after seven years of talking.”
- “I built a truly great company worth many billions of dollars. That is a big part of the reason I was elected. As President, I can make far better deals with foreign countries than Congress.”
Whoever wrote this press release (with the exception of the President’s non-sequiturs) did a fairly good job positioning the administration along side Congress in their determination to sanction Russia, even if in actuality, the President believes that Russia isn’t guilty of anything.
