WH: Trump 'Has Confidence' In Kushner, Who Attended Jr.'s Russia Meeting

Trump is also reviewing options to restrict steel imports.

"The insinuation that the White House had tried to "hide" a second meeting is false, malicious and absurd", the statement said.

Their first G-20 encounter, on July 7, lasted more than two hours.

Trump and Putin first met at the G20 during a gathering of other leaders, which was shown in a video. The leaders were all photographed by the press in before going inside.

Trump Jr. was joined at the meeting by the president's son-in-law Jared Kushner, and by Paul Manafort, who was then chairman of the Trump campaign.

It remains unclear what was discussed.

Trump spoke in front of a panoply of iconic American-made products: Gibson guitars, Maryland crab pots, a Delaware-made NASA space suit and Cheerwine soda.

If confirmed, Huntsman would take over a high-profile post amid ongoing probes into Russian meddling in the presidential election and potential ties between Russian officials and the Trump campaign.

Mr Balber said Mr Kaveladze attended the meeting to help translate, but did not have to because Ms Veselnitskaya brought her own translator.

"The Kremlin approved Huntsman's appointment Monday night about the same time that the United States approved Russian politician Anatoly Antonov to serve as Russia's ambassador in Washington, according to a person familiar with the situation who was not authorized to speak publicly about pending appointments".

Trump and Putin were seated at opposite ends of the table for the dinner, but the American leader left his spot and sat next to the Russian.

Bremmer is a foreign affairs columnist and the president of the Eurasia Group, a consulting firm. "Never in my life as a political scientist have I seen two countries major countries with a constellation of national interests that are as dissonant, while the two leaders seem to be doing everything possible to make nice and be close to each other", he told Bloomberg in an interview.

The meeting was first reported by Ian Bremmer, the president of the Eurasia Group, a think tank in NY.

Ms Veselnitskaya has denied she works for the Russian government and said the meeting focused on US-Russian adoption policies and a sanctions law.

Should he receive confirmation by the U.S. Senate, Huntsman, who has always been expected to be Trump's pick for the job, will head to Moscow as the U.S. Congress and a special counsel investigate Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential election, and whether Trump's campaign had ties to Moscow. "It was very animated and very friendly". "They were flummoxed, they were confused and they were startled". "All G20 leaders, and spouses, were invited by the Chancellor of Germany", Trump said.

Mr. Trump personally took to Twitter to denounce the story as the latest example of "Fake News" from a hostile press.

In a follow-up tweet, Trump decried the media for, as he put it, "becoming more and more dishonest!"
