US President Donald Trump has denied working for Russia, pouring scorn on the latest reports to cast scrutiny on

his relationship with Moscow. Addressing reporters at the White House as he left for Louisiana, he said: “I never worked for Russia.”

Asked outside the White House on Monday if he was working for Russia, Mr Trump denied it outright before adding: “I think it’s a disgrace that you even ask that question because it’s a whole big fat hoax.”

The Republican president was posed the same question by a Fox News host on Saturday, and called it “the most

insulting thing I’ve ever been asked”.  On Monday, the president said his dismissal of Mr Comey was “a great service I did for our country”,

The New York Times notes in its own report no evidence has emerged publicly that Mr Trump took direction from

Russian government officials. while railing against FBI investigators as “known scoundrels” and “dirty cops”.
