Russia Bans Merrick Garland, John Bolton and Others From Entering Country

For 4 years, Donald Trump refused to respond to provocative actions of Russian President Vladimir Putin. In fact, Trump seemed to do nothing but praise the Russian leader.

, Biden said, “I was clear with President Putin that we could have gone further, but I chose not to do so. Now is the time to de-escalate.”

Not surprisingly, Russia will be responding to the sanctions by banning some Americans from entering the country. This list includes Attorney General Merrick Garland, former Trump adviser John Bolton, Biden adviser Susan Rice and FBI head Christopher Wray.

Russia’s Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said in a statement, “We will respond to this measure in a tit-for-tat manner. We will ask ten US diplomats in Russia to leave the country.”
