Donald Trump offers Vladimir Putin 'White House visit'

The White House has confirmed that U.S. President Donald Trump invited Russia's Vladimir Putin to Washington.

Mr Donald Trump will meet Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe on April 17-18 to discuss the US President's planned summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un and other matters, the White House said yesterday.

White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders says the White House was among "a number of potential venues" discussed in the phone call.

During the call, Mr Trump did not raise Russia's suspected involvement in the poisoning of the former spy Sergei Skripal and his daughter in Britain, which happened two weeks earlier.

Last week, Russia announced it would expel 60 American diplomats and close the USA consulate in St. Petersburg - a tit-for-tat reaction to the US decision to order Russian diplomats out over the poisoning of an ex-Russian spy in Britain.

Trump congratulated Putin on his victory in last month's presidential election during their phone call, without first reviewing written guidance from White House advisers.

"Trump proposed holding a meeting at the White House in Washington", Putin's top foreign policy aide, Yury Ushakov, told reporters.

Is this balcony scene Evita with a twist or a brand new White House staffer?

With the first lady and a bespectacled Easter Bunny at his side, the president raved about the "perfect weather" and touted the USA economy and military, calling this a "special year".

Telephone conversation trump and Putin was initiated by the American side. The administration had no further comment on the matter, she said.

Twitter users were quick to point out the lack of diversity among the interns, especially when comparing it to the White House intern classes under former President Barack Obama.

The UK has blamed Russian Federation for the attack, claims that Moscow denies.

The Easter bunny's appearance at the White House Easter Egg roll isn't new, but that didn't stop it from sparking a ton of annual online fun.
