It is noted that the US President and the Russian President discussed a number of places to meet, including the White house. Here's why that has alarms ringing in diplomatic and foreign policy circles.

Trump and Putin had a chat on March 20 in when The Donald congratulated him on winning the Russian presidential election two days earlier.

White House press secretary Sarah Sanders did not confirm an invitation had been issued to Putin, but said the two had discussed a number of venues for a potential meeting, including the White House.

Both sides said they had not started preparations for such a visit.

Moscow's ambassador to the US Yuri Ushakov made the claims on Monday, adding he hoped for a "serious and constructive dialogue" between the two countries.

After se statements, White House lowered possibility of an imminent announcement about a meeting.

And the offer comes in the midst of the ongoing special investigation into alleged Russian meddling in the 2016 USA election.

"Nothing about this is normal".

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

Bu The Donald defended his decision on Twitter, saying President Barack Obama did the same in 2012.

While Senate majority leader Mitch McConnell said that calling Mr Putin "wouldn't have been high on my list". That should never be the objective.

His comments came a day after a reported "caravan" of more than 1,000 illegal immigrants were reported to be traveling from Honduras to the United States seeking asylum. The last time Putin was in White House was in 2005 when he met with n-president, Republican George W. Bush, at a time of greater closeness between two countries.

Mr Trump has met Mr Putin twice as President, at the G20 summit in Germany a year ago and briefly at the Asia-Pacific Economic Co-operation summit in Vietnam in November.
