Putin says he's ready to visit Washington -- and invites Trump to Moscow

Russian President Vladimir Putin says has invited President Donald Trump to visit him in Moscow and also said he is ready to go to the White House.

Putin told reporters in South Africa that phone calls were not sufficient, and the two men needed to talk about the Iran nuclear deal and other topics.

Trump took heat from members of both parties after his July 16 meeting with Putin, where the president said he found Putin’s denial of election interference ‘powerful.’
