  • Trump changes tone on immigration

She says the administration has no further comment on the matter.

In briefing papers prepared for the President ahead of the phone call, Mr Trump was warned "DO NOT CONGRATULATE" Mr Putin, The Washington Post reported.

Rolling out a welcome for Putin in the White House, rather than at a neutral location, could anger Trump's domestic critics, who accuse Russian Federation of hostile acts against Western countries, including the United States. Putin hasn't visited the White House since 2005.

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".

Mr McFaul said he feared that Mr Trump "thinks that a good meeting with [Mr] Putin is the objective of his foreign policy with Russian Federation".

Since the March 20 phone call, Washington expelled 60 Russian diplomats and closed a Russian consulate over allegations that Russia was behind the poisoning of former Russian spy and his daughter in Britain.

On March 29, Russian Federation ordered the expulsion of 60 U.S. diplomats and the closing of the United States consulate in St. Petersburg. Kurt Volker, U.S. Special Representative for Ukraine, informed about the preparation to the meeting.

Trump rebuked then-national security advisor H.R. McMaster on Twitter in February after McMaster condemned Russian Federation for election meddling before an global conference in Munich.

The White House didn't let USA reporters witness the meeting, which was also attended by Russia's then US ambassador, Sergey Kislyak, while Russian state news services released photographs of it.

There's also the issue of what might happen should the meeting actually take place.

Monday's festivities marked the 140th White House Easter Egg Roll - a tradition dating back to the presidency of Rutherford B. Hayes.

"We have two USA policies on Russian Federation".

Trump was all smiles as she sat down and read Sandra Boynton's book "You!" to a group of kids gathered at the Easter festivities. "This is as awful as it can get".
