President Trump ordered the expulsion of 60 Russian intelligence officers from the U.S., senior administration officials announced Monday, in retaliation for Moscow’s use of chemical weapons against a former Russian spy in the U.K. this month.

Out of the 60 Russians who are being ordered to leave the country, 48 work at Russian embassies and consulates and 12 at the United Nations in New York. The administration is also closing the Russian Consulate in Seattle.
