Trump considering sanctioning Turkey over S-400 purchase

US President Donald Trump told journalists on Tuesday he was looking at imposing sanctions on Turkey over its purchase of the S-400 Russian missile system, though he also blamed his predecessor for not selling Ankara a US missile system.

“As you know Turkey wanted to buy our Patriot system and the Obama administration wouldn’t let them, and they only let them when they were ready to buy another system,” he said.
