Putin, Trump will not allow armed confrontation between Russia, US - Lavrov

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

In the span of 24 hours, U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley has done what none of her colleagues in President Donald Trump's Cabinet have before: successfully telegraphed to her boss that she will not quietly suffer his public humiliations...

"Nikki Haley is not here for your sexism, White House", Cupp said at the top of her "Unfiltered" show.

For Cupp, the Trump administration not only hung Haley out to dry over the Russian sanctions, "she was then dismissed and head-patted by an old boys' club Trump adviser who thought he could".

"With all due respect, I don't get confused", Ms Haley told Fox News television.

The incident has met with silence from the president and his loyalists but has only helped to burnish Haley's image outside of the White House. One said the Kremlin has ordered officials to curb their anti-U.S. rhetoric.

Trump's posture toward North Korea and his decision to meet with the North Korean leader have largely been met with applause by the American people and cautious optimism by experts and politicians.

State Department spokeswoman Heather Nauert said Tuesday that the administration continues to weigh further sanctions against Moscow.

Oakbrook Investments LLC bought a new position in shares of Endo International during the 4th quarter valued at about $133,000. A number of other equities research analysts have also commented on ENDP . 39 funds opened positions while 72 raised stakes.

Kudlow said of Haley on Tuesday: "She's doing a great job, she's a very effective ambassador".

He said U.S. Secretary of Defense James Mattis and Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Joseph Dunford "understand the unacceptability of any actions which could provoke a direct military clash" between the two superpowers.

"The episode", says Politico, "marks the latest instance of members of Trump's team appearing out of sync with one another or with the president on foreign affairs". It is unclear exactly when Trump changed his mind - before or after her TV appearance. "That is something that the administration at the interagency level has under consideration".

More broadly, Trump has privately maintained his desire to meet again with Vladimir Putin, who he called to congratulate after the Russian President won re-election in March, according to a fourth senior administration official.

"And of course neither will President Putin or President Trump". So, since the Kim meeting was greenlit, we now have two episodes in two months of Trump proving he can't stick to a foreign policy script or even general guidelines. Trump has expressed a belief that talking directly to Putin could clear up small differences and might lead to more substantive talks.

Russia-U.S. relations have sunk to post-Cold War lows over the Ukrainian crisis, the war in Syria and the allegations of Russian meddling in the 2016 U.S. presidential election.
