"The composite image, by visual artist Nancy Burson, is meant to represent this particular moment in USA foreign policy, following the pair's recent meeting in Helsinki, Finland", Time said.

But Mr. Trump added, "Now, with that being said, if that doesn't work out, I'll be the worst enemy he's ever had". In exchange, U.S. Special Counsel Robert Mueller could send members of his team to watch Russian questioning of 12 Russian intelligence agents indicted by a U.S. grand jury last week in connection with hacking Democratic Party email accounts before the 2016 election.

In return, Mr Putin wanted permission for Russian Federation to interview Americans the Kremlin accuses of unspecified crimes.

As Mr Coats was told Russian President Vladimir Putin will visit Donald Trump at the White House next fall, he responded: "Say that again?"

Whatever tough policies the White House may have adopted toward Moscow also have to be weighed against Trump's rhetoric, which is consistently friendly to Putin.

Trump had praised the proposal on Monday as an "incredible offer" and Sanders later described it as an "interesting idea" that was being discussed internally.

He said he hadn't seen Trump's invitation himself, but that "Russia was always open to such proposals".

'The administration is not going to send, force Americans to travel to Russian Federation to be interrogated by Vladimir Putin and his team, ' Mr Pompeo said.

Congressional Republicans have criticised the White House for even considering the offer, while Mr McFaul has called it a "ridiculous request from Putin".

Antonov gave a few more details of what Trump and Putin talked about in Helsinki, but insisted that diplomatic discussions should remain discreet in order to be effective.

That ought to be a concern to everyone: Republicans, Democrats, independents. "There are many answers, some easy and some hard, to these problems.but they can ALL be solved!"

The New York Times report indicates that Trump's knowledge of Putin's interference in the 2016 election is nothing new.

While McFaul's name wasn't mentioned at the news conference held by the USA and Russian leaders in Helsinki, Trump described Putin's proposed reciprocal interrogations as an "incredible" deal.

Speaking with CNBC on Thursday, the USA president said that he would become Putin's "worst enemy" if his dealings with Russian Federation failed to produce results. We requested a business meeting next week, but that request has been declined.

'The Summit with Russian Federation was a great success, except with the real enemy of the people, the Fake News Media, ' he tweeted.

On Monday, Trump appeared to accept Putin's denial of Russian interference in the United States 2016 presidential election at their joint press conference in Helsinki, sparking uproar in Washington.

What else has happened since the Trump-Putin summit?

It comes after Mr Putin, asked in Helsinki whether he would extradite the 12 Russian intelligence agents indicted in the USA for hacking Democratic Party computers, said he would meet the United States government "halfway".
