Trump: U.S. needs dialogue with Russia

U.S. President Donald Trump expressed the need for full-fledged dialogue with Russia.

The president made the remarks while railing against what he labeled the "Russian witch hunt" one day before Mueller is set to testify before Congress on his investigation into Russia's election interference and potential obstruction by the president.

"First of all, it's very bad for our country," Trump said at the Turning Point USA Teen Student Action Summit in Washington. "Makes it very hard to deal with Russia … and we should be able to deal with them without having this artificial stuff," the Hill cited the U.S. leader as saying.
