U.S. President Donald Trump says that he will invite Russian President Vladimir Putin to the White House, but only at “the right time,” according to The Hill.
“I don’t think this is the right time, but the answer is yes, I would,” Trump told reporters aboard Air Force One Wednesday, as he traveled to France," The Hill reported.
“Look, it’s very easy for me to say absolutely, I won’t. That’s the easy thing for me to do, but that’s the stupid thing to do," Donald Trump said.
“If you don’t have dialogue, you have to be fools,” he added.
