WASHINGTON - US President Donald Trump on Wednesday dismissed the idea of any "Russian connection" in a tweet that came amid a New York Times report that said members of his presidential campaign had contacts with Russian intelligence officials.

"This Russian connection non-sense is merely an attempt to cover-up the many mistakes made in Hillary Clinton's losing campaign," he said in a post on Twitter, citing his former Democratic rival in the 2016 presidential contest.
