U.S. President Donald Trump lashes out against the media over coverage of the Russia probe and questions about his son-in-law and senior adviser Jared Kushner.

With his first foreign trip completed, Donald Trump returned to the White House to face more challenges.

According to media reports, senior adviser Jared Kushner is under FBI scrutiny for his relationship with Russian officials during the transition period before Trump took office.

In December, at a meeting with Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak, Kushner reportedly discussed creating secret back channel communications between the Trump transition team and the Kremlin through a Russian diplomatic facility.
