Russian ruble falls on Trump missile threat, US sanctions

MOSCOW — The Russian ruble has again fallen sharply as last week's U.S. sanctions continue to bite and President Donald Trump threatened a missile strike on Syria.

The dollar traded above 64 rubles on the Moscow exchange Wednesday morning for the first time since 2016, a 2 percent drop. The Russian currency fell further after Trump's message on Twitter that missiles "will be coming," trading close to 65 to the dollar.
