U.S. Sanctions Under a Trump Administration
13 December 2016
View Client Update
In recent years, the Obama administration has made significant changes to U.S. sanctions regimes, including relaxing US sanctions related to Cuba and Iran, and imposing new sanctions on Russia.
President-elect Trump has been critical of many of these changes and appears to be employing advisers and staffing his Cabinet with those who share his views.
Because the Obama administration’s changes were implemented through executive action, President-elect Trump will have substantial discretion to unwind many of the changes.
