White House bars CNN correspondent from open press event

The White House complained about questions she shouted to Trump earlier about Russian Federation and Michael Cohen. Trump's continued efforts to reach out to Russia and meet with Putin have drawn criticism from both sides of the aisle, especially as Trump fails to condemn the Russian attacks on the election. But National Security Adviser John Bolton said this week that Trump now believes the follow-up sit-down should take place "after the Russian Federation witch hunt is over" and "after the first of the year".

Speaking to reporters in South Africa today, the Kremlin chief said he had invited Donald Trump for a summit in the Russian capital.

Trump and Putin could also meet at other global events, the Russian leader said without naming them. Aide Yuri Ushakov said that while a meeting should take place, "it would be wise to let the dust settle" first. I am ready for that. "I am ready to go to Washington, too, but, I repeat, only if corresponding conditions are created there", Putin said, without elaborating on what he meant by corresponding conditions. We are ready for such meetings.

A summit last week between the pair in Helsinki caused Trump serious domestic problems, with the USA president accused of appeasing a man who allegedly tried to tilt the 2016 United States presidential election. "By the way, he has such an invitation, I told him of this".

The Kremlin chief spoke after the United States administration earlier this week delayed a second summit between Putin and Trump to next year under fire from critics at home, and was visibly at pains to demonstrate he had taken no offense.

Putin also praised Trump for keeping his promises to U.S. voters.

Republican lawmakers have made it clear they are not eager to see Putin, who intelligence officials say was aware of the 2016 interference, just weeks before Election Day 2018.

He said he wanted to talk about the controversial Iran nuclear deal, saying: "It's a subject for debate and negotiations". "We are not going to comment further on security procedures". Russian Federation and the United States have a stake in that, the whole word has a stake in that, in not starting an arms race.

"In Helsinki, @POTUS agreed to ongoing working level dialogue between the two security council staffs", White House spokeswoman Sarah Sanders wrote on Twitter July 19. "There are some things you can't do over the phone".
