The Trump administration has no immediate plans to impose more sanctions on Russia, two people familiar with the matter said, after conflicting remarks by U.S. officials in recent days stirred tensions within the White House and between the two nations.

President Donald Trump hasn’t approved any additional punitive moves against Russia and his aides haven’t formally recommended any, said the people, who spoke on condition of anonymity. Trump is prepared to impose further penalties in the future, but not now, they added.
