In a conversation that ran for over an hour according to White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders, Trump and Putin reportedly discussed the ongoing crisis in Venezuela, a potential nuclear deal between Russia and China, and the situation in Ukraine. 

In regards to the Mueller report, Sanders said the two world leaders only discussed the topic "very, very briefly."

 "We didn't discuss that. Really, we didn't discuss it. We discussed five or six things," said Trump.

Trump tweeted shortly after the call, saying, "Had a long and very good conversation with President Putin of Russia...getting along with Russia, China and everyone is a good thing, not a bad thing."

According to Sanders, the White House will soon release an extensive summary of the conversation.
