Trump opened the press conference by pledging "100%" support for those who were displaced or suffered loss from Hurricane Harvey. "Nevertheless, we do not want to turn relations with the United States into a tit-for-tat game", Ryabkov said in an interview Tuesday with Xinhua.

"He called me and the one point that he said that there will not be one light of difference - we'll have some talking points, I'm sure, but - one light of difference to get the funding that we need here in this area". "We are one family".

Trump adds that he's spoken with members of Congress and "everybody feels for" people in the storm's path.

A government shutdown will result if Congress is unable to agree on a spending deal or if Mr Trump vetoes it.

"I consider many countries as a security threat, unfortunately, when you look at what's going on in the world today", the president said.
