Fresh from his travels, Trump rails on Twitter about 'fake news'

US President Donald Trump has dismissed reports of leaks claiming his adviser and son-in-law Jared Kushner tried to set up secret communications with Moscow as "fake news".

"Whenever you see the words "sources say" in the fake news media, and they don't mention names it is very possible that those sources don't exsist but are made up by fake news writers.is the enemy!", he wrote, spelling errors and all.

The president unleashed his apparent frustration as he faces a slew of challenges upon returning home from his nine-day trip to Europe and the Middle East.

Kushner initially had come to the attention of FBI investigators a year ago as they began scrutinizing former national security adviser Michael Flynn's connections with Russian officials, the two sources told Reuters.

Kushner, who is married to Trump's daughter Ivanka, had contacts with Moscow in December about opening a secret back channel of communications, according to news reports published while Trump was away on his trip.

Trip was a great success for America.

Iran will continue missile programme, says Rouhani
Rouhani won 57 percent of the vote and avoided a runoff in an election that saw unexpectedly high voter turnout. The resolution of the nuclear crisis is of crucial importance, as Iran needs the global sanctions to be lifted.

Seemingly unable to control the leaks within his own White House, Mr. Trump has become increasingly frustrated.

In recent days, Trump and administration officials have condemned the disclosure of sensitive information, with Homeland Security chief John Kelly telling NBC's "Meet the Press" the leaks were "damn close to treason."

That suggestion was puzzling, though, since the budget plan submitted last week by the White House calls for cutting $616 billion in future Medicaid spending, $250 billion in spending cuts through the Obamacare repeal, as well as cuts for low-income children's health care.

"I think we hit a home run", President Trump told a crowd of USA service members at an Italian military base on Saturday as he wrapped up his whirlwind first trip overseas.

US Representative Adam Schiff, the top Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee, rejected the White House officials' defense of such communications with Russian Federation. The teams will also hone messaging on the Russian Federation probe, CBS News' Steve Chaggaris reported.
