WASHINGTON (Reuters) – U.S. President Donald Trump said on Thursday his administration has not ruled out imposing sanctions on Turkey over its purchase of a Russian air defence system.

“It’s a very, very difficult situation for a lot of reasons,” he told reporters in the Oval office before a meeting with Prime Minister Mark Rutte of the Netherlands. “So we’re looking at it. We’ll see what we do. We haven’t announced that yet.”
