But speaking to reporters in South Africa, where he was attending a summit of BRICS nations, Putin said another meeting with Trump was still on the agenda.

Moscow's military support starting in 2015 of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad in the Syrian war, Russia's 2014 annexation of Crimea from Ukraine and the conclusions of USA intelligence agencies that Russian Federation meddled in the election have soured relations.

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

And Fox News President Jay Wallace said, "We stand in strong solidarity with CNN for the right to full access for our journalists as part of a free and unfettered press".

The White House Correspondents' Association strongly condemned Collins's exclusion from Trump's appearance in the Rose Garden as "inappropriate, wrong-headed, and weak".

In testimony before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee on Wednesday, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said Trump "has a complete and proper understanding of what happened" in 2016. After receiving no answer, she asked, "Are you anxious about what Michael Cohen is going to say to prosecutors?" He ratcheted up his frequent, public praise of the US president, describing him as a rare politician who keeps his campaign promises.

Once the mystery of "who will replace Sergio" was solved, the focus turned back to the ailing industry leader. Having joined Fiat in 2004, he was instrumental in Ferrari's return to championship contenders.

One White House official said Trump has asked people, "These people shouting questions are the worst". The decision to bar a member of the press is retaliatory in nature and not indicative of an open and free press.

"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.

Bret Baier is under fire for a statement he made in support of the CNN reporter who was banned from a White House event on Wednesday. The White House called Collins' questions "rude". "It can not stand. Reporters asking questions of powerful government officials, up to and including the President, helps hold those people accountable".

He also said it was in the interests of Russian Federation and the United States to extend arms control treaties.

Collins had served as a representative of the television networks during an earlier "pool spray" availability in the Oval Office. The president sometimes takes questions during the sessions.
