  • President Donald Trump poses for members of the media with White House Communications Director Hope Hicks on her last day before he boards Marine One on the South Lawn of the White House in Washington Thursday

President Trump and first lady Melania hosted the annual Easter Egg Roll on the south lawn at the White House early Monday.

Mr. Ushakov said that the two countries had not started any preparatory talks for a White House meeting, because of the tailspin in relations.

Trump called Mr. Putin to congratulate him on his re-election, and told said later that the two would "probably get together in the not-too-distant future".

"If everything goes well, I hope the Americans will not give up their proposal to discuss the possibility of holding a summit", TASS news agency quoted Ushakov as saying. Ushakov said that the US and Russian governments didn't have time to start arranging the meeting before the USA announced the expulsion of Russian diplomats, the AP reported.

Some Republican lawmakers criticized Trump for making the congratulatory call to Putin.

The president thanked those who helped organize the events, including his wife and the White House Historical Association.

"We have nothing further to add at this time".

Dead After Hotel Collapses in India
The Collector of Indore Nishant Warwade has told NDTV that two to five people may still be trapped under the rubble . At least 10 people have been killed Saturday after a four-story building collapsed in Indore's Sarvate Bus Stand.

"We want to believe that the discussions (on a proposed summit) will begin", Ushakov said.

Putin and Trump are not now scheduled to see each other until November, at the G-20 summit in Argentina.

After the call, Washington expelled 60 Russian diplomats and shut down a Russian consulate in Seattle, joining Britain's allies in responding to the poisoning of former double agent Sergei Skripal and his daughter Yulia in the English city of Salisbury on March 4.

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.

Tensions also continue with the United States investigation into alleged meddling by Russian Federation in the 2016 presidential election.
