A meeting between the two leaders would be sure to generate controversy in a Washington gripped by special counsel Robert Mueller's Russian Federation probe.

Meeting with reporters on the White House lawn on June 15, Trump also blamed his predecessor, Barack Obama, for allowing Russian Federation to seize Ukraine's Crimea Peninsula.

He said that in this case is "not for Russia", and for "US".

Earlier this month, Putin said he speaks regularly with Trump and they have met in person twice since Trump took office - once at a formal bilateral meeting in Germany and once on the sidelines of a leaders' summit in Vietnam.

Republicans have historically held hawkish stances on Russian Federation, while Trump's predecessor, Democrat Barack Obama, led the charge for Russia's dismissal from the then Group of 8 in 2014 over its annexation of Crimea from Ukraine. Isolating Russian oligarchs from worldwide trade and financial markets is symbolic of a condemnation of Russia that will continue until it recognizes the sovereignty of territories like Abkhazia, Tskhinvali Region/South Ossetia, and Crimea. Then Trump argued Obama was asleep at the wheel when the intelligence community warned him about Russia's attempts to influence the 2016 election. It was part of Ukraine until 2014, when Russian President Vladimir Putin invaded and annexed Crimea with the help of pro-Russian separatists.
