USA: Russia ‘does not care’ about stopping chemical weapons – White House on Russian UN veto

United States, Washington DC
October 25, 2017 at 05:24 GMT +00:00 · Published

White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee condemned Russia for vetoing a UN Security Council resolution on chemical weapons, during a press conference in Washington DC on Tuesday.

"Blocking the extension of the investigating authority means nothing less than Russia's endorsement of the Assad regime's use of chemical weapons against innocent women and children," said Huckabee. She went on to say that the US "will continue to push back against this."

Russia yesterday vetoed a resolution to extend the official mission to investigate the use of chemical weapons in Syria.

Commenting on Senator Bob Corker's and Senator Jeff Flake's refusal to back Trump's new tax cuts, Huckabee said that "their loyalty should be to the American people and to the agenda that those people elected them to carry out."

She added that the American people care about "the big policy initiatives that this President is driving," and not "some petty comments from Senator Corker and Senator Flake".

Senators, Bob Corker and Jeff Flake have announced that they will not be seeking re-election in the Senate as their rift with President Trump over tax reforms grows bigger.

President Trump has demanded Republicans on Tuesday to pass a package of tax cuts by the end of the year.

Sarah Huckabee Sanders, secretaria de prensa de la Casa Blanca, condenó la postura de Rusia de vetar una resolución del Consejo de Seguridad de las Naciones Unidad sobre las armas químicas, durante una rueda de prensa en Washington D.C.

”Al bloquear la implementación del mecanismo de investigación conjunta, Rusia ha demostrado una vez más que no se preocupa por detener el uso bárbaro de armas químicas en el mundo" dijo Huckabee.

Rusia vetó ayer una resolución para ampliar la misión oficial para investigar el uso de armas químicas en Siria.

Al comentar sobre la negativa del senador Bob Corker y el senador Jeff Flake a respaldar los nuevos recortes de impuestos de Trump, Huckabee dijo que "esperamos que apoyen los recortes de impuestos y las reformas tributarias que la gente en sus estados ha demandado, y para lo que los han elegido”.

Añadió que Donald Trump pasa “la mayor parte de su día trabajando en impulsar iniciativas políticas” que importan más a la gente que "algunos comentarios mezquinos del Senador Corker y el Senador Flake".

Los senadores Bob Corker y Jeff Flake anunciaron que no buscarán la reelección en el Senado debido a que su disputa con el presidente Trump sobre las reformas fiscales continúa creciendo.

El presidente Trump exigió a los republicanos este martes que aprueben un paquete de recortes de impuestos antes de fin de año.
