Russia probe: Trump says Papadopoulos was a 'low level volunteer'

US President Donald Trump has dismissed the importance of a former campaign aide, who's been indicted in the Russia inquiry, branding him a "liar" on Twitter.

George Papadopoulos has admitted lying to the FBI about his Russian contacts.

It's the closest connection yet to a member of Trump's election campaign being linked to Moscow.

President Trump wasn't taking any questions on the subject, instead trying to focus on his tax reform plan.
