Haley fires back at Kudlow over Russian Federation: 'I don't get confused'

Russia our response to U.S. sanctions will be precise and painful

Moments after UN Ambassador Nikki Haley indirectly slammed the presidents' new economic adviser for saying she was "momentarily confused" when announcing new Russian Federation sanctions, Twitter erupted in praise for the diplomat.

Still, National Economic Council chairman Larry Kudlow insisted there was no confusion within the administration about the sanctions issue.

But to then have Kudlow say, essentially, "Nikki is a nice person but the big boys have got this one" was a bridge too far for Haley.

The Russian foreign minister said Russia has urged the U.S. to discuss specifics about such a meeting.

"With all due respect, I don't get confused", Haley shot back at Kudlow on Tuesday.

The one danger spot for Haley: She'll get a lot of positive buzz in the media for this showdown with Kudlow.

In the second, he left his United Nations ambassador to dangle while he backed away from a promise she made about Russian Federation sanctions on national TV. Another more charitably said there had been confusion.

According to Lavrov, Russia had been in contact with the coalition in the days leading up to the attack, dictating its "red lines" beyond which airstrikes would be considered unacceptable.

Several administration officials said Haley got ahead of President Donald Trump's decision-making when she said on Sunday that the U.S. would level new sanctions on Monday targeting Russian companies that facilitated the Syrian regime's chemical weapons programme, reports CNN.The sanctions are yet to be announced.

Instead, White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders told reporters on Monday that "a decision will be made in the near future". - New sanctions on Russian Federation over the chemical weapons attack in Syria are still under consideration despite the appearance they have been shelved, White House officials said Tuesday.

Nikki Haley is not to be trifled with - especially by the likes of a TV anchor-turned-newly-minted White House aide.

The two officials said the administration had no plans to announce Syria-related sanctions on Russia this week, although they noted that two entities were hit with such penalties last month in a largely overlooked portion of a sanctions package that dealt mainly with Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election and hacking. The Kremlin complained about the new sanctions, calling them "international economic raiding".

Trump criticised Putin after the suspected gas attack in Syria for backing "Animal Assad", but he has not done so again.

"It's so obvious, that the military officials can't but understand it, and they understand it better than many others", Lavrov said. In a never-apologize world, he graciously admitted to The New York Times that he was "totally wrong".

That independence from the political establishment is what drew Trump to Haley despite the fact that she was one of his loudest critics during the campaign. And so, I think everyone is going to feel it at this point. "She was basically following what she thought was policy".

Still, even if you vehemently object to those policies, Haley does hold an allure.

"I am 100% sure that the military will not allow this to happen and neither President Putin nor President Trump will allow this to happen", Lavrov said.
