Donald Trump to invite Vladimir Putin to White House in autumn

Ms Sanders said "those discussions are already under way" for an autumn meeting between the two presidents.

With Trump under fierce criticism in the United States, the White House on Thursday rejected Putin's proposal that Russian authorities be present for the questioning of Americans it accuses of "illegal activities", including a former US ambassador to Moscow.

It's just the latest surprise to come out of Trump's Helsinki presser with Putin.

Trump himself tweeted: "The Summit with Russian Federation was a great success, except with the real enemy of the people, the Fake News Media".

"It was important to take that stand on behalf of the intelligence community", Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats said at the Aspen Security Forum in Colorado on Thursday afternoon, adding, "I believed I needed to correct the record".

Coats laughed and told Mitchell, "Okay, that is going to be special".

Mr Trump's blond hair and eyebrows merge with the Russian president's angular features and blue eyes.

Last week, following Trump's widely panned summit with the Russian president, Coats offered a wary assessment at odds with the president's desire for a closer relationship with the former head of the KGB.

Although the USA president had nothing but warm words for his Russian counterpart ahead of their meeting, their posture upon meeting was significantly more awkward.

What happened at Monday's one-on-one between Trump and Putin with only interpreters present remained a mystery, even to top officials and USA lawmakers who said they had not been briefed.

While Trump's position on Russian interference has shifted repeatedly in recent days, some in Trump's party signalled they had had enough of his wrecking ball diplomacy and sought to take steps to box him in.

Mr Trump may have been encouraged by recent opinion polling showing that while the public at large is uneasy with Mr Trump's Russian Federation policies, his Republican base - by a sizeable majority - is fine with his performance.

The president campaigned on closer ties with Russian Federation, a goal that had been thwarted during his first year in office. With his base still behind him, Mr Trump appears ready to press on with his efforts.

How did Trump respond to Putin's suggestion?

Then on Thursday, the White House said Trump "disagrees" with Putin's offer to allow usa questioning of 12 Russians who have been indicted for election interference in exchange for Russian interviews with the former United States ambassador to Russia and other Americans the Kremlin accuses of unspecified crimes.

White House press secretary Sarah Sanders said on Twitter that Mr Trump had "agreed to ongoing working level dialogue between the two security council staffs" during Monday's summit between the two leaders in Helsinki.

"But like many other things, when it got too hot, the Republican reaction was "we don't want to know, '" Schiff said". News' Andrea Mitchell asked Coats at the Aspen Security Forum.

In one of the few concrete acts of dissidence to come from a GOP lawmaker in response to Donald Trump's disastrous press conference with Vladimir Putin, one Texas Republican wrote an op-ed calling the president out directly.

The Russian claims against the Americans, including former USA ambassador to Russia Michael McFaul, involve allegations of fraud and corruption.

Allowing Russian officials to interview Mr McFaul would be a violation of the longstanding tradition that foreign diplomats have legal immunity.

At the news conference with Putin, he was asked if he would denounce what happened in 2016 and warn Putin never to do it again, and he did not directly answer.

Mr Trump also accused the news media of trying to provoke a confrontation with Moscow that could lead to war, although concerns about the meeting have been raised by a broad cross-section of Republicans and Democrats.

On Monday, Mr Trump claimed that he "didn't see any reason" why Russian Federation would be involved in USA election meddling, a comment that sparked bemusement and anger among U.S. politicians and commentators.

The Russian ambassador to Washington also denounced "anti-Russian anger" in the United States and reiterated denials of Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential election - interrupting a questioner to say "We didn't interfere!"
