Putin Invites Trump to Moscow for a One-on-One Meeting

While Claiming to Support a Free Press, White House Defends Decision to Ban Reporter From News Conference Fox News Sides With CNN After the White House Barred a Reporter for Asking About Michael Cohen Tapes

White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders responded that Trump "looks forward to having President Putin to Washington after the first of the year, and he is open to visiting Moscow upon receiving a reciprocal formal invitation".

A pool reporter who was updating other members of the press noted: 'On what appears to be the nicest day Washington has had all week, the White House has informed the pool that POTUS will motorcade to JBA because of bad weather, ' she wrote, referring to the president.

The White House Correspondents' Association strongly condemned Collins's exclusion from Trump's appearance in the Rose Garden as "inappropriate, wrong-headed, and weak".

It hasn't been clear whether Trump's earlier announcement, that he wanted to postpone an invitation to Putin, was due to wariness by the Kremlin about agreeing to the trip or some other reason. Just because the White House is uncomfortable with a question regarding the news of the day doesn't mean the question isn't relevant and shouldn't be asked.

A free press is a pillar of any free society. Shame on @realDonaldTrump for what happened to @kaitlancollins today. Lindsey Graham tweeted a warning, saying that "if it were me, I'd check the soccer ball for listening devices and never allow it in the White House". "Be my guest. He has such an invitation, I told him that", Mr Putin said while speaking at the Brazil, Russia, India and China (BRIC) economic summit in Johannesburg, South Africa.

Fortnite for Android could launch exclusively on Samsung's Galaxy Note 9
It is the leaked Galaxy Tab S4 firmware that unveiled the Bluetooth capabilities of the Note 9's (and Tab S4's) upcoming S-Pen. Apart from getting an upgraded S-Pen, looks like there is something else to look forward to from the imminent launch.


During the Oval Office event, in which the president also met with Juncker, Collins sought to question Trump about the release of an audiotape involving then-candidate Trump and his attorney Michael Cohen in October 2016.

After Russian President Vladimir Putin gave U.S. President Donald Trump a soccer ball last week, people started voicing concern - both in jest and not - that the World Cup souvenir could be bugged.

Kaitlan Collins: "Mr. President, are you anxious about what Michael Cohen is going to say to prosecutors?"

The decision was announced by the White House press shop on a day when reporters and correspondents made their way to the building in hopes of getting the president to spout off on simmering issues, from Russian Federation to his longtime lawyer Michael Cohen.

The White House complained about questions she shouted to Trump earlier about Russian Federation and Michael Cohen.
