Haley later rebuffed with a stunning statement that opened a new rift in the administration and raised questions the White House's explanation of its comments.
"With respect, I'm not confused," she said in a statement by CNN's Jake Tapper.
But Kudlow was not alone. A day earlier, White House press secretary Sarah Sanders responded to reports of Haley's comments saying that the government was "considering additional sanctions against Russia," but no decision had yet been made.
Separately, two high-ranking government officials told CNN Tuesday that the president did not sign the new sanctions when Haley made her comments on two news programs on Sunday and said Haley must have run away from a White House Friday meeting on the sanctions since the plans would not have understood. 1
In the private sector, Trump was "upset" about the confusion, said a high-ranking government official, one of the rare instances in which Haley drew his anger. It's not clear if Trump spoke directly with her since the White House said Haley had crossed. Trump has praised Haley's achievements in the UN Security Council for his helpers as she draws Syria's attention to the government.
Haley was not the only official to leave the meeting on Friday, believing that the sanctions against Russian units would be announced Englisch: www.germnews.de/archive/en- wider US embassy on chemical weapons attacks following US – led air strikes in Syria, government officials said. But Haley did not put aside her sanctions with other government officials before appearing on CBS's "Face the Nation" and "Fox News Sunday" on Sunday, two officials said.
Other administrators were surprised that Haley had passed. Haley is known within the White House for being one of the brightest and most open personalities in public life. She was known to clarify her remarks directly with the president before appearing in Sunday news programs because she warned against objecting to a public-minded president. A senior government official expressed skepticism that Haley had publicly sanctioned without a member of Trump's national security team confirming their plans for their interviews.
Even as the White House Haley blamed the questions left open, they specifically asked: Treasury "Secretary Mnuchin will announce (new Russia sanctions) on Monday if he does not already." She even said the sanctions would "hit any kind of business related to Assad equipment and chemical weapons."
And if Haley was passed over on Sunday, it is not clear why the White House has been waiting more than 24 hours
The confusion hit the typical episode of Eyerolls throughout Washington where some of the public dissonance between Haley and the White House as another symbol of the inconsistency of the Trump presidency in terms of policy considered, especially when it came to Russia.
"How many other things you want to mention have been rolled out in this way?" US Senate Foreign Relations Committee Chairman Bob Corker, a Tennessee Republican, told reporters Tuesday. "I did not think much about it, you know, two weeks ago we left Syria the next day, and the next day we were not there, it's just some kind of standard confusion."
But this official said Trump does not hold "illusions" about Putin and realizes the big disputes between the US and Russia will not be resolved with a single meeting.
Officials who were not directly involved in the remediation consultations but knew of their progress were not surprised by Haley's announcement on Sunday because they were "in the direction" of the considerations (19659004) Several government officials said they expected the Sanctions were announced in the days after the Syrian strikes on Friday night, when even Trump warned the US response to Syria's suspected use of chemical weapons "Integrate all the instruments of our national power – military, economic and diplomatic."
"We are ready to receive this response until the Syrian regime finds its end using banned chemical agents," Trump said in his national address.
Questions that prompted Haley to give such a clear indication of the imminent sanctions still hung on mild Palm Beach Tuesday, where the president and some of his top aides spend the week.
It was not immediately clear either that the sanctions Haley had foreseen – and several officials said they came from the pike – were still threatening.
"Additional sanctions are under discussion but have not been determined yet," Kudlow said Tuesday.
Trump told the consultants on Sunday that Russia's response to the strikes was less aggressive than expected, which questioned Trump's whether additional sanctions were warranted
while Trump still felt the need for additional sanctions in light of Russia's modest reaction to the Questioning US strikes, several government officials said they were expecting new US san against Russian companies facilitating the Syrian chemical weapons program.
One source familiar with the deliberations said the sanctions were certainly off the table and the discussions continued, but did not want to say when they would be publicly announced.
