US President Barack Obama’s decision to impose new sanctions on Russia and expel diplomats from the country demonstrates the outgoing president’s weakness, Senator Tom Cotton said on Friday.

WASHINGTON (Sputnik) — Cotton on Thursday criticized Obama for what he said were measures that would have little impact on Moscow.

"Obama’s response to Russian attempts to influence US political processes are more of the same failed foreign policy," Cotton said in a Twitter post.

On Thursday, US outgoing President Barack Obama announced the expulsion of 35 Russian diplomats, the closing of two Russian diplomatic compounds in Maryland and New York and new sanctions against six Russian individuals and five entities over Moscow's alleged interference in the November US presidential election, which the Kremlin has repeatedly denied.

Following the move, Cotton criticized Obama for what he said were measures that would have little impact on Russia.

The Republican lawmaker has repeatedly urged tough legislation targeting Russia.

Russian President Vladimir Putin said Friday that Moscow would not retaliate against the United States for Obama’s actions.
