"The idea that there is a delicate decorum", he added, before mimicking a Trump aide as saying, "that's not how we conduct ourselves in this White House". Trump has said he wants to improve ties between the two nuclear powers, whose relations have dipped to a post-Cold War low in recent years.

On Wednesday, National Security Adviser John Bolton said that the president instead "believes that the next bilateral meeting with President Putin should take place after the Russia witch hunt is over", referring to U.S. special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation into allegations of Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election and whether there was collusion among the Trump campaign team. The last time Trump was in the Russian capital was in 2013, to attend a Miss Universe beauty pageant.
