Trump meets Russia foreign minister amid Comey controversy

President Trump said he had emphasised to Mr Lavrov his desire to build a better relationship between the United States and Russian Federation.

Washington D.C. [U.S.A.], May 11: The morning after United States President Donald Trump fired Federal Bureau of Investigation director James Comey, the meeting with Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov was the one event that had everybody's attention pouring in.

But following this latest meeting, Trump told Lavrov Moscow should "rein in the Assad regime, Iran and Iranian proxies".

"The FBI is one of our nation's most cherished and respected institutions and today will mark a new beginning for our crown jewel of law enforcement", Trump said, according to the statement. The White House declined a request for confirmation. He stressed Russias responsibility to fully implement the Minsk agreement.

President Donald Trump has spoken out about his decision to fire FBI Director James Comey.

Melissa McCarthy Rides Through New York as Spicer
Less expected, however, was seeing her, in full Spicer garb, riding a motorized podium through midtown Manhattan. Nonetheless, McCarthy is set to "come out of the bushes", as Spicer, in a big way on Saturday.

Comey, in his role as FBI director, had been conducting an investigation into possible ties between Russian Federation and the Trump campaign.

We want to see the killing, the terrible killing, stopped in Syria as soon as possible and everyone is working toward that end.

IBut while it may not have made that meeting, but Mr Lavrov also met earlier with US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson earlier and couldn't resist the opportunity to mock the firing on camera.

"Our dialogue is free from ideologized, which was characteristic of the Obama administration".

The Lavrov visit marks the highest-level meeting Trump has held with a top Moscow official since assuming power, and it comes a month after the president said relations between Washington and Moscow may be at an all-time low.

Morning Joe Hosts Claim Kellyanne Conway Hates Donald Trump
Judging by reports suggesting President Trump values personal loyalty a great deal, he likely won't be happy about this claim. Conway, a pollster by trade, started the 2016 election cycle working for a super PAC that supported Senator Ted Cruz.

"Regarding this noise about our contacts, that fake information by which we are allegedly in control of the domestic policy of the USA - yes, it [has become] the normal background for our relations", he said.

Russian Federation denies the allegations.

Lavrov met with Secretary of State Rex Tillerson behind closed doors, and following their discussion, the two men appeared before the media for a photo op and brief remarks. "You're kidding! You're kidding!"

"We believe the U.S.is really interested in that", Lavrov said, acknowledged details of the plan still needed to be worked out. Everyone in the Trump administration understands that these were illegitimate actions. He says through a translator that "there is not a single fact" or piece of compelling evidence proving Russia's intervention in the election.

President Donald Trump today asked Russian Federation to "work together" with the USA to end the Syrian conflict and underscored the need for Moscow to rein in the Bashar al-Assad regime there, and Iran and their "proxies".
