"It had nothing to do with the content of the question", Gidley told reporters aboard Air Force One as President Donald Trump headed back to Washington from Iowa and IL.

The White House says President Donald Trump is "open to visiting Moscow" once he receives a "formal invitation" from Russian President Vladimir Putin.

While 8 percent of Democrats approve of Trump's meeting with Putin, 68 percent of Republicans said they approved of Trump's handling of the summit.

After the White House banned CNN reporter Kaitlan Collins from covering an event in the Rose Garden on Wednesday, journalists banned together in support of Collins, including Fox News, President Trump's favorite network. Coats asked NBC's Andrea Mitchell when she read news of the invitation out loud while conducting a public interview with him in Aspen.

While cautioning that "conditions have to be provided" for a follow-up to their July 16 summit in Helsinki, Putin said that Trump "has a wish to hold further meetings, and I am ready for that".

The awkward back and forth is the latest round of summit drama flowing from the two leaders' controversial first meeting in Helsinki this month.

Is it true, as the Russian media suggest, that Trump is open to allowing Putin, the man behind interference in the 2016 USA election, to stage a referendum in the Ukraine in order to claim that nation as Russian territory?

Now some fear Putin may have overplayed a winning hand and are bracing for a United States sanctions backlash.

"The big plus of president Trump is that he strives to fulfill the promises, above all, given to voters", Putin added. She and her employer, CNN, said she was barred because White House officials found her questions "inappropriate", which Gidley disputed. If Russia interfered in the 2016 election, then his election victory is tainted - and Trump is unwilling to allow that possibility to go unchallenged.

US Secretary of Defense Jim Mattis said there has been no decision taken yet and Trump has been widely criticized in the country following the Helsinki summit.

Putin said he and Trump have important matters to discuss, including Iran, the war in Syria, and the looming expiration of the New Start nuclear arms control treaty in 2021.

Sanders was reportedly one of the staffers, along with former communications director and Trump whisperer Hope Hicks, who tried to talk the president out of his revenge tactics.

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".

Speaking in Johannesburg on Friday, Putin made a case for better ties, saying that the world was a safer place when Moscow and Washington were talking to each other.

"In Washington, Trump would be surrounded by more aides, media, and the entire policy audience".

"I am ready to go to Washington".

The United States is now arming Ukraine, said Portman, noting that he'd pushed both the Trump administration and former President Barack Obama's administration to do. His invitation for Trump to come to Moscow - whether the invitation has been formally tendered or is only in spirit - also appears to pressure Trump to show whether he is bold and disruptive enough to buck intense criticism at home.
