Trump signs bill imposing sanctions on Russia Interesting turn of events! POTUS Trump isn't in control any more. He has essentially caved in to pressure from (bipartisan) Congress, signing a bill that he didn't want to sign. He is now forced to do things he and his base don't want to do. Or maybe The General put a gun to his head and said: "Sign it, NOW! Or I'll pistol whip you so hard, your toupee will fly from the West Wing to the East Wing."
