President Donald Trump has halted the implementation of new Russian sanctions, just one day after United Nations Ambassador Nikki Haley said that new sanctions were coming.

Haley had gone on CBS News' "Face the Nation" to announce that sanctions on Russian companies that made materials used in Syrian strongman Bashar al Assad's chemical weapons attack would be announced by Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin on Monday.

"The global community will not allow chemical weapons to come back into our everyday life", she said in an interview aired Sunday. "Secretary Mnuchin will be announcing those on Monday, if he hasn't already".

After the Kremlin complained about the new sanctions, Trump told his national security team later Sunday that he was upset the sanctions were being put into place because he was not comfortable with them, sources told the paper. Also under consideration are Russian companies that sell helicopters and helicopter parts to Syria, sources familiar with the matter said.

In an earlier statement following the strikes, Haley said the Donald Trump administration was ready to launch more missiles in case of any further chemical attacks in Syria. Assad is a close ally of Moscow. She added that the conflict must ultimately be resolved through a UN-led political process.

Haley also said the response by the Trump administration was "cumulative", taking into account not only the recent chemical weapons attack in Douma, but also other, smaller, attacks.

Screenwriter Lawrence Kasdan has referred to this movie as " a love story between Han and Chewie " and "a bromance". Han and Chewbacca have always interacted like an old married couple and it seems like that started very early.

"It's not something we're going to tolerate and they've got to make a decision", she added.

But the pans to punish Russian Federation for its support for Assad's government over the attack in Syria "caused consternation" at the White House, the paper reported.

"Right now they don't have very good friends and right now the friends that they do have are causing them harm", Haley said, referring to Russian Federation. "We are evaluating, but nothing to announce right now", she said.

"The president would still like to sit down with him, he feels like it's better for the world if they have a good relationship". They need to do more. "I think that's the right approach", Haley added.

Referring to the airstrikes, Haley said: "I think everyone knows that we sent a strong message".
