"When our presidents spoke on phone, Trump proposed to hold first meeting in Washington at White House", said Yuri Ushakov, Putin's worldwide policy advisor, at a press conference, according to Reuters reports.
Since that call, on March 20, preparations for a possible summit have not progressed because of a diplomatic row, the aide, Yuri Ushakov, said early on Tuesday (AEST).
During the call, Trump didn't raise Russia's meddling in US elections or its suspected involvement in the poisoning of the former spy and his daughter in Britain.
After Trump responded, while surrounded by children attending the annual event, Acosta asked "didn't you kill DACA, sir?"
Tensions also continue with the United States investigation into alleged meddling by Russian Federation in the 2016 presidential election. "It is special, and we keep it in tip-top shape".
"Nothing about this is normal".
Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov yesterday suggested that the poisoning of a former double agent could benefit the British government by distracting attention from problems around Brexit. "We have nothing more to add at this time", Sanders said to press.
"[The] symbolism of Putin standing in the East Room with the President at a news conference would be a major goal for the Russian leader", he said.
Why does Trump never criticize Putin?
Mr Putin, who was president of Russian Federation once before, visited the White House in 2005, when Mr Bush welcomed him in the East Room as "my friend".
Mr Putin has been to other parts of the USA frequently in recent years, including a visit to the Bush family compound in Maine.
