He also said Fake News is the "enemy".

Not holding a press conference marked a breach of custom at a major global event where the U.S. president traditionally faces the press at the end, and often during the trip as well.

Other reports about Kushner's interactions with Russian officials have surfaced in recent days in other major news outlets, including The Washington Post. According to the sources, Sergei Kislyak, the Russian ambassador to the United States, discussed Kushner's proposal with his superiors, and it's a discussion over that conversation that the intercepted communications between other Russian operatives allegedly captured.

Trump routinely criticized the media during his presidential campaign and after taking office, as well as the sources within the White House providing that information.

The FBI have been looking into Ivanka Trump's husband Jared Kushner over his engagement with Russian Federation.

Press Secretary Sean Spicer didn't hold his regular daily briefings, although he answered pool reporters' questions during an off-camera gaggle at North Atlantic Treaty Organisation headquarters in Brussels.

Trump has denied the report.

Notice he said nothing about Jared, though. "We're just not going to".

President Donald Trump is back from his first big overseas trip - complete with dual meanings of "journey" and "stumble" - and things got back to "normal" quickly.

"It is my opinion that numerous leaks coming out of the White House are fabricated lies made up by the #FakeNews media", the President told his nearly 31 million Twitter followers.

New York Times reporter Glenn Thrush, who has broken a number of stories about Trump (and been mocked on Saturday Night Live for it), responded to the president's claims on Twitter.

In a series of tweets, the Prez told his 30.8 million followers if they see the words "sources say" without mentioning names, it's possible the news story is fake.

Conservative commentator and Weekly Standard editor Bill Kristol also weighed in on Trump's Sunday morning allegations.
