President Donald J. Trump has quietly extended for one year the “national emergency” executive order issued by his predecessor Barack Obama that ultimately led to the sanctions and retaliatory measures taken by the Obama administration against Russian officials for that nation’s role in hacking activities targeting the US election.

In a Federal Register Notice published on March 29, Trump called for Obama’s EO 13694 from April 1, 2015, to remain in effect for one year.
