Trump aide says lifting Russia sanctions "under consideration"Senior advisor Kellyanne Conway said Friday President Donald Trump is willing to consider removing US sanctions against Russia when he has his first official discussion with Kremlin leader Vladimir Putin on Saturday.

When asked whether the lifting of sanctions will be on the table at the talks from the outset, Conway said: “All of that is under consideration.”

In a TV interview Friday aired on Fox News Conway also said: “If Vladimir Putin wants to join with the US to have a serious conversation about how to defeat radical Islamic terrorism,” then “we’re listening."

“It’s America first and that includes in his foreign policy and his national security moves,” Conway said, in response to a question on whether Trump would first require Russia to change its international behavior in countries including Syria.
