Donald Trump has asked his staff to invite Russian president Vladimir Putin to visit the White House later this year، according to a tweet issued by spokesperson Sarah Sanders، as the Guardian said. In a tweet Sanders said Trump had asked national security advisor John Bolton to invite Putin “to Washington in the fall and those discussions are already underway.”
We have a small favour to ask. More people are reading the Guardian than ever but advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. And unlike many news organisations، we haven’t put up a paywall – we want to keep our journalism as open as we can. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. The Guardian’s independent، investigative journalism takes a lot of time، money and hard work to produce. But we do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective، too.
The Guardian is editorially independent، meaning we set our own agenda. Our journalism is free from commercial bias and not influenced by billionaire owners، politicians or shareholders. No one edits our Editor. No one steers our opinion. This is important because it enables us to give a voice to the voiceless، challenge the powerful and hold them to account. It’s what makes us different to so many others in the media، at a time when factual، honest reporting is critical.
If everyone who reads our reporting، who likes it، helps to support it، our future would be much more secure
