US media reports that US President Donald Trump told Russian officials that firing FBI director James Comey eased "great pressure" on him.

Citing a document summarising the meeting in the Oval Office last week, the New York Times said that President Trump called Comey a "real nut job".

Comey had been running an inquiry into possible collusion between Russia and Donald Trump's election campaign.

The White House has not disputed the language used.

The report was published just as President Trump took off on a flight to the Middle East for the first leg of his first foreign tour as president.
