You're seeing the influence of James and Lachlan Murdoch, the sons and runners of the Post.

Trump took to Twitter to defend Donald Trump Jr after the release of emails showing his namesake's embrace of a Russian offer to provide derogatory information about his 2016 presidential opponent Hillary Clinton.

The latest revelations have put the president's son at the centre of the scandal involving multiple US investigations into whether Trump associates colluded with Moscow in a bid to tilt the election in the Republican's favoUr.

The White House is hoping that a quick dash of French pomp and circumstance will distract from the constant barrage of negative news about links between Trump's presidential campaign and Russia. It's signed The Post Editorial Board. "But always Putin's going to want Russia and Trump's going to want the United States", he said. He would like Hillary where she wants to have windmills.

"That's what Putin doesn't like about me", the president added.

"We are the most powerful country in the world and we are getting more and more powerful because I'm a big military person". "And that's why I say, why would he want me?"

Mr Trump has said his campaign did not collude with Russia.

President Trump says he gets along "very well" with Russia's President Vladimir Putin.He was interviewed by the Christian Broadcasting Network days after his much anticipated meeting with Mr Putin at the G20 summit in Hamburg.The US president also said he was sure Mr Putin would have preferred Hillary Clinton was sitting in the White House.Several investigations are under way into allegations Russia helped get Mr Trump elected.Mr Trump has denied any knowledge of this and Russia has also repeatedly denied interfering.On the meeting with Mr Putin, Mr Trump said "people said, oh, they shouldn't get along".

That concern is "certainly something we want to explore", along with the Trump campaign's data analytics, as part of a broader committee investigation into Russian meddling, Schiff said.

The President goes on to describe himself in the third person and say that coal, fracking, and natural gas are all "opening up ... but nobody ever mentions that", and that Putin would "hate" these developments.

Wray also dismissed criticism of the Mueller investigation. Trump Jr. said the meeting "really went nowhere" and that he never told his father about it because there was "nothing to tell".

A Reuters reporter asked the president Wednesday if he had known about his son's meeting with the Russian lawyer Natalia Veselnitskaya in June last year. Trump indicated he might be open to rejoining the Paris agreement, which the U.S. announced it has withdrawn from.

But Agalarov rubbished the emails touting him as a go-between for the Trumps and the Kremlin and said he only vaguely knew Goldstone. "It doesn't make sense [not] to have some kind of relationship".
