Vladimir Putin says Russia is ready to invite Trump to Moscow

US President Donald Trump is open to visiting Moscow - if he gets a formal invitation from Vladimir Putin, the White House has said. "To be clear, we support a free press and ask that everyone be respectful of the presidency and guests at the White House".

President Donald Trump has sought to punish reporters when he's unhappy with the way they approach him, The Washington Post reported on Friday.

Lemire asked whether Trump would, "with the whole world watching", denounce Russia's interference in the 2016 presidential campaign.

Maddow made the omission the lead of her prime-time broadcast Tuesday night.

Collins has said officials had found her questions "inappropriate".

"A critical exchange deleted from the transcript. She said it didn't matter to her because she hadn't planned to be there anyway", Mrs. Sanders said.

The White House denied that the omission was deliberate.

The Republican leaders appear to be increasingly relying on public signals, rather than private phone calls or Oval Office chats, to catch the White House's attention and communicate with Mr Trump - especially when they are at odds with the president's approach or policies. The audio mixer at the site in Helsinki did not bring up the question mic level in time to catch the beginning of Mason's question because the translator was still speaking, the official said. "This was by no means malicious". "Any media outlet attracting that much anger from the White House is likely to gain something in terms of reputation in the industry".

CNN's competitor, Fox News, also issued a statement on the incident.

According to Reuters, protesters organized by the opposition Libertarian Party chanted slogans such as "Putin is a thief" and "away with the tsar" after the Kremlin proposed raising the retirement age from 60 to 65 for men and from 55 to 63 for women, meaning many will not live to enjoy their pension in a country where life expectancy is just 71.

Olivier Knox, president of the White House Correspondents' Association, said the group would challenge any further efforts by Trump to curtail the access of reporters who offend him. "The Fake News Media wants so badly to see a major confrontation with Russian Federation, even a confrontation that could lead to war".

"I love WaPo with the heat of 1000 suns, but nothing here from WaPo disproves our report", she tweeted.

"The President believes that the next bilateral meeting with President Putin should take place after the Russian Federation witch hunt is over, so we've agreed that it will be after the first of the year", Trump's national security adviser John Bolton said in a statement on Wednesday. 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.

Vice President Mike Pence also weighed in on the matter on Sunday, telling Fox News' "Sunday Morning Futures", "This administration believes in the freedom of the press. but maintaining the decorum that is due at the White House, I think is an issue that we'll continue to work for".

The White House said no agreements were reached in the one-on-one meeting with Putin other than having national security teams meet.

Journalism ethicists questioned why the White House still hadn't updated its transcript.
