Vladimir Putin 'ready to invite Donald Trump to Russia'

Trump 'open' to visiting Moscow for meeting with Putin

He said the agreement for the meeting was "perhaps the only agreement reached at the Helsinki summit" last week between Russian President Vladimir Putin and U.S. President Donald Trump.

Following the backlash in the United States over Trump's cordial public tone with Putin at the Helsinki summit, US and Russian officials backed away from a proposal to schedule a follow-up summit in Washington.

Trump believes that any suggestion of Russian interference delegitimizes his presidency.

The White House on Wednesday barred CNN White House correspondent Kaitlan Collins from an open press event after she asked Trump questions at an Oval Office photo op with European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker that the White House deemed inappropriate.

White House said their president was interested for next summit to improve ties between the two countries as relations have worsened in recent years.

Then, National Security Adviser John Bolton said on Wednesday that plans for an autumn visit would be delayed until 2019.

Maybe that is why a new NBC News/Marist Poll, conducted from July 19-22, found that 53 percent of voters say Trump has done something either "unethical" or "illegal" in his relationship with Russian Federation. For instance, Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats reiterated the US intelligence community's assessment that Russian Federation interfered in the 2016 elections and recently stated that Russian Federation is continuing efforts to interfere in America's democratic processes.

He added that he would consider a visit to Washington but noted there must be "necessary conditions", without further explanation.

"I look forward to our second meeting so that we can start implementing some of the many things discussed", Trump said.

Essex Police said the search for a boy who was last seen in water near Clacton Pier on Thursday evening resumed on Friday morning. The level 3 warning, one behind a national emergency, has been issued with temperatures set to be in the high 20s this week.

Collins later said on CNN, "Those questions were questions any reporter would have asked, and I was there to represent all of the networks and therefore ask about the questions of the day". But Collins later refuted this claim, noting that the event was "totally normal" and "wasn't anything different from any other pool spray", she said.

Putin and Trump met in Helsinki earlier this month at a summit, but Trump faced a storm of criticism back home for his handling of the meeting.

Donald Trump has been at frequent loggerheads with CNN since taking office, but their feud has become increasingly bitter as the channel's acerbic White House coverage fuels a boom in viewers. Much of what we know about Russia's interference in the 2016 elections, including the level of Putin's involvement, comes from human sources.

As a private citizen and candidate in the 2016 election, Trump has successfully prevented reporters and entire news organizations from obtaining media credentials to attend his campaign events.

Since Helsinki, Mr Trump has tried to back-pedal on at least some of his comments.

The decision has received widespread backlash from the press community. Olivier Knox, president of the White House Correspondents' Association, issued a statement condemning the White House's behavior as "misguided and inappropriate".

"It is a proposal that was made in sincerity by President Putin, but President Trump disagrees with it", Sanders said.

"In Washington, Trump would be surrounded by more aides, media, and the entire policy audience".
