Collins says Shine accused her of shouting and asking "inappropriate" questions during an earlier joint appearance by Trump and Juncker. We are ready to invite President Trump to Moscow.

Collins' questions had focused on Trump's former lawyer, Michael Cohen.

"We are ready for such meetings, we are ready to invite President Trump to Moscow", Putin said at the BRICs summit in South Africa's Johannesburg.

After receiving no answer, she asked, "Are you anxious about what Michael Cohen is going to say to prosecutors?" However, efforts to achieve a detente have been fiercely resisted by the USA lawmakers, including some in Trump's own Republican Party, who accuse him of being too friendly towards Putin.

"Just because the White House is uncomfortable with a question regarding the news of the day doesn't mean the question isn't relevant and shouldn't be asked", the network said. He has also asked that retaliatory action be taken against them.




The White House on Thursday defended its decision to bar a CNN correspondent from attending an open press event but contended it had nothing to do with the questions she asked. "This type of retaliation is wholly inappropriate, wrong-headed, and weak".

Although Trump's frustration with Cohen is clear, his administration's decision to strip Collins of her access to the afternoon press pool was not popular with members of the press.

Sen. Richard Blumenthal, D-Conn., who was on CNN when the news was announced, said, "This kind of, really, violation of a reporter's rights is an offense against the First Amendment interests of all of us".

The White House on Wednesday postponed that invitation until next year, when a federal investigation of Russian election interference could be finished. The president sometimes takes questions during the sessions.

One of the most recent changes to the White House communications shop is the hiring of Bill Shine, the former president of Fox News who was accused of covering up sexual misconduct at the network.
