"Trump proposed holding a meeting at the White House in Washington", Putin's top foreign policy aide, Yury Ushakov, told reporters.

Trump made the offer during a phone call between the two leaders, Russian presidential aide Yury Ushakov confirmed.

Mr McFaul said he feared that Mr Trump "thinks that a good meeting with [Mr] Putin is the objective of his foreign policy with Russian Federation".

Trump extended that olive branch during last month's controversial call in which he also congratulated Putin - despite his advisers' reported warnings - on winning re-election.

Putin hasn't visited the White House since 2005.

Trump's congratulations came around the same time Britain expelled Russian diplomats due to the country's alleged involvement in the poisoning of a former Russian spy.

Other experts stress the aggressive moves that the Trump administration has taken against Russian Federation, from expelling diplomats and closing consulates to a new round of sanctions.

While the Trump administration sent lethal aid to Ukraine - which the Obama administration decidedly did not - Trump himself tweeted that having a good relationship with Putin could persuade Russian Federation to help resolve the crisis in Ukraine, the country it invaded in 2014, the same year it annexed Crimea.

Both presidents held ir first meeting last July in Germany and were seen again in November at a summit in Vietnam.
