Although Russian interference in the 2016 election is the immediate cause of this battle over sanctions, the tug of war between Congress and Trump over sanctions policy is part of a century-long fight over who gets to decide how to treat the private property of citizens of hostile countries, one that has raged ever since Congress gave the president authority to unilaterally conduct economic warfare.
