The Trump administration says it is amenable to a White House meeting between U.S. President Donald Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin, raising the prospect of the Russian leader's first Washington visit in more than a decade even as relations between the two powers have eroded. White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said the White House was among "a number of potential venues" discussed in Trump's telephone call last month with Putin. The Kremlin said Monday that Trump invited Putin during the call. If it happens, Putin would be getting the honor of an Oval Office tete-a-tete for the first time since he met President George W. Bush at the White House in 2005 .Much has happened since Trump and Putin spoke in the March 20 phone call.Trump has said maintaining a strong personal relationship with Putin is in the U.S. interest and has signaled to allies that he trusts his own instincts in dealing with the Russian president.Putin, who has been president of Russia once before, visited the White House in 2005, when Bush welcomed him in the East Room as "my friend".
