McConnell says next Trump-Putin meeting can wait

The ball Russian President Vladimir Putin gave to US. President Donald Trump appears to have an NFC chip in

Trump wasn't "prepared as well as he should have been" for the meeting, Graham said, adding that it is "imperative that he understand that he is misjudging Putin". Moscow was lukewarm and did not immediately accept.

"The Summit with Russian Federation was a great success, except with the real enemy of the people, the Fake News Media", Trump said on Twitter. He cited special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation into Russian election meddling as the reason, using Trump's favorite term for the probe: "witch hunt".

Russian President Vladimir Putin said that Russia's navy in 2018 will receive 26 new ships and vessels, four of which will be equipped with the Caliber missile system, Gazeta.ru reports.

"And I'm ready to come to Washington if appropriate conditions for work are created", he said.

Relations between Russian Federation and the United States have been fraught because of rows over Russia's annexation of Crimea, and allegations - denied by Moscow - that the Kremlin meddled in the 2016 presidential election to help Trump win. Coats asked NBC's Andrea Mitchell when she read news of the invitation out loud while conducting a public interview with him in Aspen.

In a nutshell, CNN White House pool reporter Kaitlan Collins asked some questions during an earlier photo op in the Oval Office that Press Secretary Sarah Sanders deemed "inappropriate", as multiple outlets reported.

But it's just talk at this point.

"We have to proceed not from emotions, but from the real assessment of economic conditions and prospects of its development and (the development of) the social sphere", Putin said.

Trump Paid Hush Money to 3 More Women, 1 Pregnant, Says Avenatti
Daniels lawyer Michael Avenatti said the emails provided more evidence that the arrest was politically motivated. Cohen initially said he used his own money to pay Daniels and was not reimbursed by Trump.

Until this week, the officials said, Trump's senior aides have resisted carrying out his directives.

Scaramucci served as President Trump's communications director for just 11 days.

The US leader has since tried to walk back at least some of his comments. If Russia interfered in the 2016 election, then his election victory is tainted - and Trump is unwilling to allow that possibility to go unchallenged.

The US justice department has been investigating Mr Cohen for months, having raided his home, office and hotel room in search of documents related to a 130,000 dollar (£99,000) payment the attorney facilitated before the 2016 election to Stormy Daniels. Aljazeera reported on a survey which found that only 37.9 percent of participates trusted President Putin on issues of national importance. "To be clear, we support a free press and ask that everyone be respectful of the presidency and guests at the White House,".

Putin said he had no knowledge of Trump's past business trips to Russian Federation when they were happening and that he could not keep track of or monitor every single person who traveled to his country.

Russian Federation also hasn't backed off its support of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad's regime, said Portman.

Moscow has portrayed its tensions with Washington as a result of Trump being hobbled by domestic political disputes and a widespread "Russophobia" perpetrated by holdovers from the Obama years - echoing Trump's penchant to blame his predecessor for many problems. "He has done nearly three times as many question-and-answer sessions with reporters as his predecessor, and we continue to provide access to the press in a number of venues and formats every day". "And he is open to visiting Moscow upon receiving a formal invitation".
