"We will work closely with our friends and Allies to ensure our messages to Russia, Iran, and North Korea are clearly understood".
A federal law enforcement investigation and multiple U.S. congressional probes looking into the possibility that Trump's campaign colluded with Russian Federation, have made it harder for Trump to open a new chapter with Putin.
The White House initially wavered on whether the president would sign the measure into law. However, his administration has been relentlessly plagued with the investigations of Russian collusion in the Trump presidential campaign.
Before Mr Trump's decision to sign the bill into law, Republican senator John McCain said its passage was long overdue, a jab at Mr Trump and Republican-controlled Congress.
"There is a bipartisan consensus to confront Russian Federation across the board - from its actions in Ukraine, Syria, cyber, its election meddling - you name it", said Boris Zilberman, a Russian Federation sanctions expert with the Foundation for Defense of Democracies.
The bill is created to affect a wide range of Russian industries, hitting the country squarely in the pocketbook. But rejecting it could lead to an embarrassing veto override, as the bill cleared both chambers by wide margins, and lead to criticism that he's seeking to protect Russian Federation.
Besides angering Moscow, the legislation has upset the European Union, which has said the new sanctions might affect its energy security and prompt it to act, too.
But in a statement late Friday, press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said Trump had "reviewed the final version and, based on its responsiveness to his negotiations, approves the bill and intends to sign it". But late Wednesday he announced that he sees "a path forward on legislation to sanction Iran, Russia and North Korea" following "very productive discussions".
But Republican Bob Corker, chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, said it would be a serious mistake and i f Mr Trump rejected the bill, Congress would overrule him.
Russian Federation denies it interfered in the election and Trump has said there was no collusion.
".The election of the United States president, it is not our business, and it is not up to us to assess what he does in this very senior post, that's up to the U.S. public", Putin said. "And we want to make sure that they're tough sanctions and that they're durable sanctions". They've also traditionally favored a policy that keeps Moscow in check for its own aggressive measures in Eastern Europe and Syria, as well as its efforts to disrupt elections in the US and across Europe.
Russian Federation has already retaliated by ordering cuts to USA diplomatic staff and barring the use of some properties.
"It's impossible to endlessly tolerate this kind of insolence towards our country", Putin said after the House vote.
Putin, at a news conference with Finnish President Sauli Niinisto, also spoke about former President Barack Obama's order last December to seize Russian diplomatic property in the United States and to expel 35 Russian diplomats.
"This arouses deep regrets because such actions imply aggravating circumstances and special cynicism", Putin said.
