President Donald Trump has invited Russian President Vladimir Putin to the White House this fall for a second get-together, even as cleanup from the first continues with no letup.

A White House meeting would be a dramatic extension of legitimacy to the Russian leader, who has long been isolated by the West for activities in Ukraine, Syria and beyond.

No Russian leader has visited the White House in nearly a decade.

 

 

Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders says Trump has asked National Security Adviser John Bolton to invite Putin, and “those discussions are already underway.”

Trump tweeted earlier that he looked forward to “our second meeting” as he defended his performance at Monday’s summit.

President Donald Trump has asked national security adviser John Bolton to invite Russian President Vladimir Putin to Washington in the fall.

That’s the latest update Thursday from White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders following Trump’s meeting with Putin earlier this week in Finland.

Sanders says “those discussions are already underway” for a fall meeting between the two presidents.

It presumably would take place at the White House, but Sanders did not say where Trump and Putin would meet.

In a tweet about Putin earlier Thursday, Trump said, “I look forward to our second meeting.”

In other Russian based news, The Senate has overwhelmingly approved a resolution against allowing Russia to question former U.S. ambassador Michael McFaul or other U.S. officials. It was a formal rebuke to President Donald Trump, who touted the offer at the Helsinki summit with Russian President Vladimir Putin.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell hastily arranged the vote on the nonbinding resolution after Democrats proposed the measure in response to what Trump had called Putin’s “incredible offer.”

Putin offered to allow the U.S. to question 12 Russians accused of interfering in the 2016 election in exchange for permitting Russia to interview Americans the Kremlin accuses of unspecified crimes.

Facing a backlash of bipartisan criticism, the White House on Thursday said Trump “disagrees” with Putin’s offer. That statement came moments before the Senate vote.

Senators voted 98-0, with all Democrats and most Republicans supporting the resolution.

    TDS is real and black women own it. Just like they live rent free off the hard working tax payers of the country, Trump is living rent free in their head. MAGA

      @pete: My father, an African American, died in the Korean War in the ’50s. U are advocating American against American, which is Russia’s agenda & has been Russia’s agenda before u and I were born.

    In the 2012 presidential debate Obama mocked Romney for saying Russia was our biggest threat, what happened?? Well in 2015 and 16 the boy sit’n in the weeds was informed that the Russians were tampering in our election process and did nothing since Hilary was already ordained to be the next president, Russia and WikiLeaks exposed Hilary and the DNC’s conspiracy to sabotage Bernie’s campaign causing DNC Chair Debbie Schultz to resign regardless Hilary had still been ordained to be President
    However come Nov 2016 the voters of America (a great many of which voted for Obama) saw her as an unfit candidate and sent her back to the woods in Chappaquiddick, it’s well known that Putin saw Obama as a weak suck and had no respect for him, so maybe Putin feels in visiting Trump the State Diner wont consist of fried chicken and watermelon

      Huf, facts are very threatening to those who refuse to think for themselves. Look no further than Whoopi Goldberg for how tolerant the left is when their talking points meet facts. #WalkAway

    @Queen: no truer words could be spoken! If Obama had invited Putin to the White House AFTER HACKING INTO OUR ELECTIONS, the Democratic & Republican Senators would charge him with TREASON & followed-up with IMPEACHMENT or Obama would have been assassinated for siding with our #1 Adversary.
