Putin Says He's 'Ready' to Go to Washington

Journalists reacted with dismay when the Trump administration barred CNN’s Kaitlan Collins from attending a presidential event in the Rose Garden

One of the most recent changes to the White House communications shop is the hiring of Bill Shine, the former president of Fox News who was accused of covering up sexual misconduct at the network.

"Regarding our meetings, I understand very well what President Trump said".

The ever-increasing stretch without visiting USA troops in combat zones has come under even greater scrutiny as Trump has gone out of his way to schedule visits with Vladimir Putin.

Last week, just days after they met in Helsinki, Trump invited Putin to Washington for a second sit-down.

After the meeting last week in Helsinki, the Trump administration invited Putin to Washington. "By the way, he has such an invitation, I told him of this".

"To be clear, we support a free press and ask that everyone be respectful of the presidency and guests at the White House", Sanders said.

Putin appeared to dominate Trump during the summit in Helsinki, and the U.S. president faced a storm of criticism at home for his handling of the meeting.

White Helmets head Raed Saleh said the evacuated workers had arrived in Jordan after being "surrounded in a unsafe region". Meanwhile, Israel said it fired a pair of missiles to intercept two missiles fired from Syria in Israel's direction.

Interfax quoted Putin as saying he is ready to visit Washington "if the appropriate conditions are created there".

But both CNN and NBC reported - citing anonymous sources - that Cohen is willing to assert his claim to Special Counsel Robert Mueller, who is investigating Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election and possible collusion with Trump's campaign.

It would be Mr Trump's first visit to Moscow since 2013, when he took the Miss Universe beauty pageant, which he then owned, to the Russian capital. "I repeat once again, if the right conditions for work are created".

Journalists listen to Russia's President Vladimir Putin during a news conference following the BRICS summit in Johannesburg, South Africa July 27, 2018.

Efforts by both Trump and Putin to achieve detente have been fiercely resisted by US lawmakers, including some in Trump's own Republican Party, accusing him of being too friendly toward Putin, whom they consider an adversary of the United States.

The Russian leader said telephone calls between Moscow and Washington were insufficient and that both sides needed to meet to talk about issues like the Iran nuclear deal and global conflicts.

Russian Federation is under punitive sanctions imposed by the United States and the European Union and wants them lifted. "There are some things you can't do over the phone". The audio mixer at the site in Helsinki did not bring up the question mic level in time to catch the beginning of Mason's question because the translator was still speaking, the official said.
