Washington (CNN) – President Donald Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin spoke by telephone Friday morning for “over an hour,” during which they briefly discussed special counsel Robert Mueller’s report and other issues, White House press secretary Sarah Sanders said.
Speaking to reporters at the White House, Sanders said the Mueller report was discussed “very, very briefly,” adding it was discussed in the context of it being over. She added that it was a “very good discussion” and that the call’s “primary focus” was about the need to help people in Venezuela, including getting supplies to them.
Friday’s call marks the first time the two have spoken since the conclusion and release of the Mueller report. Their last reported correspondence was a letter Putin sent Trump over the new year, saying his country was “open for dialogue” with the US.
Sanders said Friday the Mueller report was brought up “essentially in the context that it’s over and there was no collusion, which I’m pretty sure both leaders were both very well aware of long before this call took place.”
