White House economic adviser Gary Cohn says President Donald Trump is "looking at" the future of U.S. sanctions on Russia.

Asked what the current administration position is, Cohn said, "Right now, we don't have a position."

Cohn spoke to reporters on Air Force One as Trump headed to the Group of 7 summit in Sicily. G-7 leaders kicked Russia out of the group of wealthy nations for its annexation of Ukrainian territory.

Cohn says he expects Russia to be a topic during the two-day summit. Pressed on what specifically the White House was looking into on sanctions, Cohn would only say that Trump has "many options."
