U.S, Russina, China, China seek reduction in manufacture

"And maybe even where we get rid of some of the tremendous firepower that we have right now".

That conversation also included a discussion of "the possibility of having conversations with China" about joining a new nuclear arms treaty, Sanders said.

Trump said that he has already spoken to China.

Mr Mueller's report was finally published earlier this month after an nearly two-year investigation into Russia's attempts to sway the 2016 U.S. presidential election and the Kremlin's potential collusion with the Trump campaign.

When another reporter pressed again on whether he warned Putin against future interference, Trump replied: "We didn't discuss that".

White House press secretary Sarah Sanders first broke news of the call to reporters at the White House during a press gaggle.

Putin has echoed some of Trump's talking points in ridiculing the Mueller probe.

Todd Schnitt of Newsmax TV said on his show that it was clear Putin was not a friend of the United States.


"They will have an opportunity, obviously, to meet and review whatever topics they choose to", a senior State Department official told reporters on a conference call previewing Pompeo's trip.

Trump later tweeted about the call, referring to the Muller investigation as the "Russian Hoax". Trump joined the Russian leader at a news conference in Helsinki last summer in publicly challenging the USA intelligence community's conclusion that the Kremlin directed the interference campaign, drawing condemnation from American lawmakers in both parties.

Sanders was also asked about whether the President made any progress on getting Putin to back off his support of Maduro.

President Trump also called out the mainstream media over its coverage of unproven collusion with Russian Federation, saying "when will the radical left wing media apologize to me for knowingly getting the Russian Federation collusion story so wrong".

Sanders said the two leaders spoke extensively about North Korea's nuclear weapons program.

US-Russian tensions have spiked over the months-long stand off in Venezuela, and the Kremlin's assessment of the Trump-Putin call differed substantially from that coming from the White House. "It was a very positive conversation", Trump said. According to the press spokeswoman for Sanders, the two presidents have reaffirmed their commitment, as well as the need for the denuclearization of North Korea.

Trump has raised election meddling with Putin in past conversations, but has tended to play down the impact of what happened in 2016 out of concern that his victory over Democrat Hillary Clinton might seem illegitimate.

Trump did condemn efforts by Russian Federation or any other country to interfere in America's elections during the 2016 election. "Now new excuses are being sought to attack President Trump". While the Trump administration backs opposition leader Juan Guaidó, Russian Federation is allied with sitting Venezuela President Nicolás Maduro.
