Sanders said the conversation lasted for more than an hour and briefly touched upon Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 U.S. presidential campaign. She said that issue was discussed in the context that the investigation had ended.

“They discussed a nuclear agreement, both new and extended, and the possibility of having conversations with China on that as well,” White House spokeswoman Sarah Sanders said.

“They discussed trade and the fact that it has increased between the two countries since the president has come into office. They also talked about North Korea. They also spoke about Ukraine and Venezuela — an overall positive conversation,” she said.
