Putin ‘ready to go to Washington’, invites Trump to Moscow

The agency quoted Putin as saying "He has, by the way, such an invitation, and I told him about it".

That's fine with Trump, said Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders. "I repeat once again, if the right conditions for work are created".

After the Helsinki summit, Trump was criticized at home for failing to publicly confront Putin over Moscow's meddling in the 2016 presidential election, and for seeming to contradict his own intelligence agencies on the threat from Russian Federation. "In 2021, the New Start treaty expires", he said, referring to a nuclear arms control treaty. "We stand for access for WH reporters-no matter what you think about their coverage", he wrote later on Twitter, adding a reminder that CNN stood up for Fox News when former President Obama refused them access during his term in office. He later said he had misspoken at the summit.

On Wednesday, National Security Adviser John Bolton said that the president instead "believes that the next bilateral meeting with President Putin should take place after the Russia witch hunt is over", referring to United States special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation into allegations of Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election and whether there was collusion among the Trump campaign team.

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.

Trump denies there was any collusion.

"The great advantage of President Donald Trump is that he strives to fulfill his promises, primarily to the voters, the American people".

USA intelligence agencies concluded a year ago that Moscow waged an influence campaign to help Trump win the White House by hacking into Democratic Party computers and using fake social media accounts to denigrate Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton.

President Trump shakes hands with Russian President Vladimir Putin at the end of a news conference after their meeting at the Presidential Palace in Helsinki on July 16.

Mr Trump has repeatedly denounced the investigation as a "witch hunt" meant to delegitimise his presidency.

At various moments throughout his presidency, Trump has vented angrily to aides about what he considers disrespectful behavior and impertinent questions from reporters in the Oval Office and in other venues.
