Trump said in a tweet on Sunday, a day after he returned from his maiden overseas trip, which he described as a big success.

White House press secretary Sean Spicer on Tuesday refused to answer questions about Jared Kushner's reported efforts to establish a secret communications channel with the Kremlin using Russian facilities.

Trump started by lashing out against the coverage of the probe, tweeting, "It is my opinion that numerous leaks coming out of the White House are fabricated lies made up by the #FakeNews media". He is respected by virtually everyone and is working on programs that will save our country billions of dollars.

Trump also said he trusts his 36-year-old senior adviser, Kushner, because he is a very good person.

Trump struck back Sunday, after maintaining a limited social media presence throughout his nine-day trip.

"But I think the thing that happened this weekend that is really important that people missed because they're so giddy about this story about Kushner, is that it blew up the collusion conspiracy", he explained, "because if there had actually been a collusion conspiracy, there would already be back channels to Russian Federation". Michael Flynn, since fired as the president's national security advisor for his Russian associations, was also at the meeting.

The Palestinians see it as the capital of a future independent state. "This is how it has been and how it will continue to be". The Wall stands in the Old City in the east of Jerusalem , which Israel captured during the 1967 Middle East war.

Kushner reportedly flew home Thursday from Rome with his wife, Ivanka Trump, and arrived in his West Wing office on Friday to meet with White House Chief of Staff Reince Priebus to discuss the presidential trip.

During his first run for the White House, then-candidate Obama said he'd meet with foreign leaders of countries who are enemies to America without preconditions.

U.S. Senator John McCain, a key foreign affairs figure in Congress, said he views Russian Federation and its president, Vladimir Putin, as the "greatest challenge we have", even more so than that posed by Islamic State terrorists.

Nevertheless, some critics have called for Kushner's security clearance to be revoked, while others say he should temporarily step aside while his ties to Moscow are being reviewed. At the time, a White House official dismissed it as a brief courtesy meeting.

Rep. Adam Schiff, the top Democrat on the House intelligence committee, said Sunday on ABC that USA officials need to get to the bottom of the allegations against Kushner, including if Kushner was not honest about his Russian Federation contacts during the security clearance process.

President Trump tells the New York Times he has "total confidence" in his son-in-law, Jared Kushner.
