The Trump administration is considering whether to once again allow Russians to access to retreats that the Obama administration made off limits in response to Russia's meddling in the 2016 presidential election.
President Barack Obama blocked Russians from accessing retreats in Centreville, Md., and Oyster Bay, N.Y., as one of the sanctions he imposed on Russia.
But Trump is now looking at restoring that access to Russia, according to the Washington Post.
The Post said Russia initially said it would consider this shift if Russia allowed the U.S. to build a consulate in St. Petersburg. But the U.S. position of linking the two issues quickly changed, according to the report.
One possible idea under discussion is whether to restore the diplomatic immunity that the two buildings previously enjoyed.
