"I told him about this", Putin said at a news conference at an worldwide summit in Johannesburg on Friday, referring to the possibility of a Trump visit to Moscow.

The White House said Trump was enthusiastic about another summit.

Putin went on to say Russian Federation was ready to greet Trump in Moscow.

Both Trump and Putin have said they are determined to improve relations.

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. Trump frequently answers reporters' questions even as staffers try to usher them out of the room, creating sometimes-chaotic scenes where low-level press officers shout at reporters as the president tries to speak.

Sen. Richard Blumenthal, D-Conn., who was on CNN when the news was announced, said, "This kind of, really, violation of a reporter's rights is an offense against the First Amendment interests of all of us".

The president has been widely criticized for failing to publicly denounce Russia's interference in the 2016 USA election and appearing to accept Putin's denials of such activity. It led to him reading out a clarification in which he said he had misspoken, mixing up the word "would" with "wouldn't".

On Wednesday, the White House announced that a planned follow-up meeting between Trump and Putin in Washington, originally expected to take place this fall, will instead be pushed to next year.

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.

"The great advantage of President Donald Trump is that he strives to fulfill his promises, primarily to the voters, the American people". Trump has repeatedly denounced the investigation as a "witch hunt" meant to delegitimize his presidency.
