Donald Trump invites Vladimir Putin to the White House amid poisoning row

Social media users criticize White House interns lack of diversity

"As the President himself confirmed on March 20, hours after his last call with President Putin, the two had discussed a bilateral meeting in the "not-too-distant future" at a number of potential venues, including the White House".

Sanders confirmation that a White House invite is under consideration for the Russia president comes at a time of heightened tensions between the two countries and in response to reports that a Kremlin aide had told Russian reporters on Monday that Trump had directly proposed the idea of a face-to-face at the White House during a March 20th phone call between the two leaders.

Russia denies meddling. Trump won bipartisan praise in Congress for ordering the expulsion last week of 60 Russian diplomats regarded as spies, the most since 1986, in a display of unity with Europe after the United Kingdom blamed Putin's government for the March 4 nerve-agent attack on former spy Sergei Skripal in England.

Last week, Russia announced it would expel 60 American diplomats and close the USA consulate in St. Petersburg - a tit-for-tat reaction to the US decision to order Russian diplomats out over the poisoning of an ex-Russian spy in Britain.

"When the presidents talked on the phone, Trump suggested holding a meeting in Washington DC", Ushakov told reporters on Monday.

In his remarks from the White House portico, President Trump attributed the day to his wife's hard work.

In calling Putin, Trump ignored explicit advice from his national security advisers not to do so, The Washington Post has reported, quoting officials familiar with the call. "They are wrong! Getting along with Russian Federation (and others) is a good thing, not a bad thing".

The UK has blamed Russian Federation for the attack, claims that Moscow denies.

Some Republican lawmakers criticised Trump for making the congratulatory call to Putin.

"It's high time for us to stop blaming each other". When Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov met with Trump in the White House in May 2017, Trump allegedly shared Israeli intelligence with him.
