Be my guest, Putin tells Trump

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

The Russian leader said that it would be good if the two nuclear powers have better ties and are talking to one another.

Reporter Kaitlan Collins said press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders and communications director Bill Shine told her she was banned from a late-afternoon announcement in the Rose Garden involving Trump and European Union president Jean-Claude Juncker a few hours after she sought to question Trump during a press-pool "spray" in the Oval Office.

Putin also praised Trump for keeping his promises to United States voters. Trump has defended his conduct. Officials have been very vague about anything that was agreed to, however, and Defense Secretary James Mattis says that no policy changes were made during the summit. This comes after the Treasury Department recorded Russian Federation as having fewer holdings in US cash. The president has been widely criticized for failing to publicly denounce Russia's interference in the 2016 U.S. election and appearing to accept Putin's denials of such activity.

"I am ready to go to Washington", Putin told reporters after a summit of the leaders of the BRICS group - Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa - in Johannesburg, adding that he had also invited Trump to visit Moscow.

President Putin on Friday announced that he is inviting Trump to visit Moscow for a meeting. Despite the USA intelligence community's consensus that Putin ordered Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election to help elect Trump, the president himself has been hesitant to condemn Russia and even sided with Putin's denials after their most recent meeting in Helsinki.

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

The spectacle of Trump in the Russian capital _ the site of unproven salacious allegations in an anti-Trump dossier compiled by a former British spy _ was likely to raise eyebrows and alarm on Capitol Hill.

Efforts by both Trump and Putin to achieve detente have been fiercely resisted by USA lawmakers, including some in Trump's own Republican Party, accusing him of being too friendly towards Putin, whom they consider an adversary of the United States.

Trump, whose advisers have warned him Russian Federation continues its interference in the run-up to congressional elections in November, met with his national security aides on Friday to discuss election security. Aide Yuri Ushakov said that while a meeting should take place, "it would be wise to let the dust settle" first. Trump has repeatedly denounced the investigation as a "witch hunt" meant to delegitimize his presidency.

Trump's response to the criticism _ an abruptly announced invitation for a second meeting in Washington in the fall _ got an ice-cold reception from Republicans in Congress facing tough elections in November.
