President Donald Trump on Saturday continued to promote his phone call with Russian President Vladimir Putin, saying there is “tremendous potential” for the two countries to have a good or great relationship.

Trump suggested the “Fake News Media” is not covering that potential fairly. He alleged the media misled the public about special council Robert Mueller’s investigation into Russia’s interference into the 2016 U.S. presidential election.

Trump and Putin spoke by phone for over an hour on Friday, the White House said. The two discussed the Mueller report, Venezuela and North Korea.
