'My organisation's running like a fine-tuned machine', says Donald Trump

"I never get phone calls from the media", Trump added.

Trump lashed out at reporters for "this whole Russian Federation scam that you guys are building, so that you don't talk about the real subject, which is illegal leaks".

A senior administration official told CNN that Trump walked into the Oval Office on Thursday morning and said: "Let's do a press conference today". The telephone consultations presumably took place a month prior to Trump's inauguration.

"I worry about the position we've been put into with the whole General Flynn conversations", she said. How do they do it?

He knows that U.S. officials told the New York Times there are recordings of calls between some of his people and Russian intelligence agents.

When asked whether the leaks are real or fake news, he replied, "The leaks are absolutely real".

Trump made his announcement on Acosta brief, saying that he expects him to be "tremendous" in his new role. "He's speaking to the vice president - to Vice President Pence, relative to the conversation the vice president had with Gen. Flynn and also speaking to various other people about what he considers the single most important subject there is, our national security".

"We need President Trump to step up and lead us in that endeavor".

"To be honest, I inherited a mess".

Sushi bars, Brazilian steakhouses, Mexican eateries and Thai and Italian restaurants all turned away lunchtime customers. Organizers in Philadelphia told the Associated Press they expect hundreds of workers and families to participate.

He, Vice President Mike Pence and White House Spokesman Sean Spicer subsequently and falsely denied that Flynn had discussed sanctions.

United States President Donald Trump has mounted a vigorous defence of his presidency at a White House news conference, accusing American news outlets of being "out of control" and vowing to bypass the media by taking his message "straight to the people". "This administration is running like a fine-tuned machine, despite not being able to get my Cabinet approved".

Trump asked for and received Flynn's resignation on Monday after disclosures that the senior aide had discussed U.S. sanctions imposed on Russia by the Obama administration with the Russian ambassador to the United States before Trump took office, and that Flynn later misled Vice President Mike Pence about the conversations.

Flynn has also not been cleared in the broader investigation into whether he and others in the Trump campaign were in regular contact with Russian officials during the election. He said he would like to read transcripts of those phone calls in a classified setting, and he noted that even Flynn has not seen the transcripts. That's not great. Look, it would be much easier for me to be tough on Russian Federation, but then we're not going to make a deal.

"I am the least anti-Semitic person that you've ever seen in your entire life".

Mr Trump described as "not good" Russia's recent moves to place a spy ship off the USA east coast, launch a ballistic missile and have aircraft buzz a U.S. warship in the Black Sea.

At the news conference, Mr Trump said Mr Flynn was "doing his job and I agreed with him".

Meanwhile, his secretary of defense, James Mattis, said the United States is not ready to collaborate militarily with Russian Federation, saying President Vladimir Putin and Russian Federation must "prove itself", according to The Associated Press.

"If you were Putin right now you would say, "Hey, we're back to the old games with the US".
