Trump Reportedly Suggested Putin Come To The White House

Trump invited Putin to White House for summit, Kremlin says

Since the call, two dozen countries expelled more than 150 Russian diplomats in solidarity with Britain over the poisoning of Sergei Skripal, the former spy, and his daughter Yulia.

The talks were in preparation for Trump's meeting with Putin which took place at the Group of 20 summit in Hamburg in July 2017. Washington expelled 60 Russian diplomats and closed Russian consulate in Seattle in face of fear that it would be used as a base for espionage. Putin hasn't visited the White House since 2005.

President Donald Trump holds hands with the Easter Bunny on the Truman Balcony of the White House in Washington, Monday, April 2, 2018, during the annual White House Easter Egg Roll. The White House since confirmed the (informal) invitation.

Are you surprised to see this in Trump's White House? And does the invitation threaten to undermine recent USA measures taken against the Kremlin? Here's why that has alarms ringing in diplomatic and foreign policy circles.

The prospect of Putin visiting Washington is likely to sharpen divisions in the USA over relations with Russian Federation amid continued tensions regarding alleged Kremlin meddling in the 2016 US presidential elections.

On March 29, Russian Federation ordered the expulsion of 60 U.S. diplomats and the closing of the United States consulate in St. Petersburg.

Petersburg's Danielle Collins tops idol Venus Williams at Miami Open
Jelena Ostapenko beat 7-6 6-3 Danielle Collins , hitting 33 winners to 12, and reached her sixth career final, the first in 2018. The 24-year-old American beat her idol, Venus 6-2, 6-3 within ninety minutes to scale through to the semifinal.

"We have nothing further to add at this time", she said. "Actions speak much louder than words and here we have to look at the Trump administration's actions".

Rolling out a welcome for Putin in the White House, rather than at a neutral location, could anger Trump's domestic critics, who accuse Russian Federation of hostile acts against Western countries, including the United States. Trump later described the call as "very good" and said he planned to meet with Putin "to discuss the arms race, which is getting out of control".

The invitation, nevertheless, seemed to represent Trump's efforts to cooperate with Putin on multiple global issues.

"There is certainly plenty of urgent business on the U.S. -Russia agenda, from nuclear risks to regional conflicts, but under the circumstances a lot more work still needs to be done to ensure that a summit meeting would be productive", writes Matthew Rojansky, director of the Kennan Institute at the Wilson Center, in an email to FP.

The invitation is also just the latest example of the president seeming to be on a different page from the rest of the administration when it comes to Russian Federation.

Her ensemble reflected the day's cooler weather, with temperatures in Washington hovering around 45 degrees, compared to the balmy climates at last year's Easter Egg Roll, where she wore a sleeveless pink dress by Hervé Pierre (who also crafted her inaugural gown) to celebrate the occasion.
