The incident occurred during an official meeting with a British delegation at the White House.
US President Donald Trump shouted at Michael Flynn, the national security adviser, during a lunch with a British delegation after learning of a missed phone call from Russian President Vladimir Putin, Newsweek reported.
This is the former head of the administration of the then British Prime Minister Theresa May Nick Timothy.
According to him, in 2017, during an official meeting with the British delegation in the White House, someone mentioned that Putin had recently called the American leader, after which Trump began shouting at Flynn.
