WASHINGTON (AP) President Donald Trump spoke with Russian President Vladimir Putin on Friday about nuclear weapons, the possibility of getting China into a three-party arms control pact and the ongoing crisis in Venezuela where Moscow is propping up the current government over the U.S.-backed opposition.
During their conversation, which lasted more than an hour, they also discussed North Korea, Ukraine, U.S.-Russia trade and very, very briefly special counsel Robert Muellers just completed report on Moscows interference in the 2016 election, White House press secretary Sarah Sanders said.
Had a long and very good conversation with President Putin of Russia, Trump tweeted after the call. As I have always said, long before the Witch Hunt started, getting along with Russia, China, and everyone is a good thing, not a bad thing.
