Putin praises Trump’s commitment to fulfilling campaign promises

Vladimir Putin says Russia is ready to invite Trump to Moscow

Vladimir Putin says Russia is ready to invite Trump to Moscow

And Trump counselor Kellyanne Conway said the incident showed the need broadly for more "civility" between reporters and the White House.

"The president has made it clear that his Administration will not tolerate foreign interference in our elections from any nation state or other malicious actors", said White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders.

Mr. Trump's son-in-law Jared Kushner, son Donald Jr., and top campaign official Paul Manafort met at Trump Tower on June 9, 2016 with Russian lawyer Natalia Veselnitskaya, who had said that she was offering information from the Russian government aimed at helping Mr. Trump to victory.

Trump had initially invited Putin to Washington this fall for a follow-up meeting to their Helsinki summit, but Trump national security adviser John Bolton changed the timeline this week, saying Trump now believes it should take place "after the Russian Federation witch hunt is over" and "after the first of the year".

Kaitlan Collins and her employer, CNN, say the White House denied Collins access to Trump's Rose Garden event with the European Commission president because officials found her earlier questions "inappropriate".

It's part of "a power game between Putin and Trump", said Dr. Alina Polyakova of the Brookings Institution. "I am ready for this".

This comes just days after Putin said he is not yet ready to visit the White House, despite the clarification he would, only if certain conditions are satisfied. We are ready for such meetings. "He has this invitation already and I told him about it", according to CNN.

Putin said Friday he's ready to invite Trump to Moscow and ready to visit Washington if conditions are right.

He said that, in the meantime, it's possible that he and Trump would meet during the G20 summit in Argentina in November.

The White House on Wednesday postponed that invitation until next year, when a federal investigation of Russian election interference could be finished.

Russian President Vladimir Putin holds a press conference at the end of the 10th BRICS summit in Johannesburg, South Africa, on July 27, 2018.

"In Helsinki, we talked about the issues in which our states have a real stake".

He went on to praise Mr Trump, saying he "strives to fulfil the promises, above all, given to voters". He also said that it was in the interests of Russian Federation and the USA to extend arms control treaties. "Are we going to extend it or not? If we don't start talks in 2021, the treaty will cease to exist". "You can not discuss everything by phone".
