Russia's Putin tells Trump: 'Be my guest in Moscow'

Russia's Putin tells Trump: 'Be my guest in Moscow'

But Friday, Putin accelerated the timeline, saying that he's ready to come to the White House and revealing for the first time that he's invited Trump to Moscow.

Trump faced particularly intense criticism after the news conference, during which he appeared to support Putin's "extremely strong and powerful" denial of subverting the 2016 USA presidential election.

U.S. President Donald Trump arrives to deliver remarks on the South Lawn of the White House in Washington, U.S., July 27, 2018. 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". It underscores Trump's eagerness to forge a warmer relationship with Putin, though the Russian does not appear to share the urgency and Trump's allies in Washington are watching with frustration.

"I think it should start here at the White House and just show a little bit more respect", she said. By the way, he has such an invitation, I told him about that.

Trump is hardly in a strong position because "the Helsinki summit was such a fiasco", said James Goldgeier of the Council on Foreign Relations.

But speaking to reporters in South Africa, where he was attending a summit of BRICS nations, Putin said another meeting with Trump was still on the agenda.

Donald Trump's longtime personal attorney says the US president knew in advance of a June 2016 meeting in which Russians were expected to share dirt on then-election rival Hillary Clinton, US media reported Wednesday. "But there would need to be the appropriate conditions", Putin said.

"President Trump looks forward to having President Putin to Washington after the first of the year, and he is open to visiting Moscow upon receiving a formal invitation", Mrs Sanders said in a statement on Friday. Trump has said he wants to improve ties between the two nuclear powers, whose relations have dipped to a post-Cold War low in recent years. "I repeat once again, if the right conditions for work are created".

Putin also praised Trump for keeping his promises to U.S. voters. "Are we going to extend it or not?"

"Yes, we have contacts on a working level, but sometimes that's not enough, we need contacts at the highest political level", Putin said. "You can criticize him for what he is doing, and some people do criticize him, however, one thing remains absolutely clear - he is committed to fulfilling his campaign promises".

But when the logistical decision was made to have Trump travel by motorcade in 'The Beast, ' there was no longer an opportunity for the president to take questions.
