Finally, Kimmel got to ask about Putin. The comedian earlier quipped that since entering the White House in January, Trump “has spent more quality time with Vladimir Putin than he has with Barron this year,” noting that it is their third encounter.
White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders told CNN that there is no formal meeting on the books between Trump and Putin, but an informal conversation was likely.

“Have you ever seen a table? Have you ever put something on a table? Now just picture everything on a table,” said ‘Conway’....Read more
