According to the report, Trump had impounded the notes on one occasion from the interpreter present at the meetings between the two presidents and directed them to not divulge the details of the talks with other administration officials.

There was "no detailed record, even in classified files" of Trump's one-on-one meetings with the Russian President, according to The Washington Post.

Trump said that he had a "great conversation" with Putin, while White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders, dismissed the report as "inaccurate".

The New York Times (NYT) on Friday reported that an FBI probe was launched whether Trump was working for Russia on behalf of Russia against American interests, following Comey's dismissal in May 2017. The then FBI director was leading an investigation into alleged Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election.

In response, Trump on Saturday blasted the NYT report, calling it "a total sleaze".

"Wow, just learned in the Failing New York Times that the corrupt former leaders of the FBI, almost all fired or forced to leave the agency for some very bad reasons, opened up an investigation on me, for no reason & with no proof, after I fired Lyin' James Comey, a total sleaze!" he wrote on the micro-blogging site.
