White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders refused to say Monday whether President Donald Trump would select a nominee to fill Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy's seat who would overturn Roe v. Wade.
"We're going to be talking about Ukraine, we're going to be talking about Syria, we'll be talking about elections, and we don't want anybody tampering with elections", Trump said to reporters on Air Force One.But Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov told Reuters on Monday that Crimea is not up for discussion.
Sanders' remarks contrast with those of national security adviser John Bolton, who a day earlier suggested that Trump may eventually acknowledge Russia's seizure.
Sanders adds that the U.S. agrees "to disagree with Russian Federation on that front and our Crimea sanctions against Russian Federation will remain in place until Russian Federation returns the peninsula to the Ukraine".

"The president is working to fix the broken system and he'll continue pushing for that", she said.
