WASHINGTON (Reuters) - President Donald Trump on Thursday said reports in the U.S. media about his administration's relationship with Russia may make it difficult for him to strike a deal with Russian President Vladimir Putin to ease tensions between Washington and Moscow.

"Putin probably assumes that he can't make a deal with me any more because politically it would be unpopular for a politician to make a deal," Trump said at a press conference.
