Trump has repeatedly denied his campaign colluded with Russian Federation and has characterized the investigation by Special Counsel Robert Mueller as a witch hunt.

Deputy press secretary Hogan Gidley said Thursday that Kaitlan Collins was denied access to Trump's Rose Garden event with the European Commission president on Wednesday because of her refusal to leave the Oval Office during a previous availability with the president.

Putin said Friday, "I understand very well what President Trump said: He has the wish to conduct further meetings".

We are ready to invite President Trump to Moscow. The agency quoted Putin as saying "He has, by the way, such an invitation, and I told him about it". "We need for the appropriate conditions to exist, to be created, including in our countries", Putin said at a press conference. The U.S. president "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", she said.

But it's just talk at this point. Collins asked. "Mr. President, are you anxious about what Michael Cohen is going to say to prosecutors?.Why has Vladimir Putin not accepted your invitation, Mr. President?"

The White House Correspondents' Association also issued a harshly worded statement condemning "the White House's misguided and inappropriate decision.to bar one of our members from an open press event after she asked questions they did not like". The paper recently reported that Trump wasn't happy that he got tough questions at the Helsinki summit.
