Trump accuses US Congress of taking relations with Russia to all-time low

Donald Trump also expressed hope for cooperation with Russia

WASHINGTON, August 3. /TASS/. The US Congress is responsible for Washington’s relations with Moscow reaching an all-time low, US President Donald Trump said.

On Wednesday, Trump signed a bill imposing new sanctions on Russia, Iran and North Korea, which had been passed by the Congress.

However, the US president said that the document was "significantly flawed" and included some "unconstitutional provisions." At the same time, Trump expressed hope for cooperation with Russia.

The US Senate earlier failed to repeal the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, known as Obamacare, initiated by the previous US President Barack Obama.
