While Trump and Putin ordered summit preparations to begin after their phone call, the expulsions meant "there was no time for discussion and there wasn't even anyone to discuss it with", Ushakov said.
But their governments did not have time to arrange details before the USA expelled 60 Russian diplomats following the Salisbury poisoning, they revealed.
Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov, however, told CNN that reports that Trump had invited Putin to the White House were not correct.
"When our presidents spoke on the phone, Trump proposed having the first meeting in Washington, in the White House", Ushakov told reporters at a briefing. The White House since confirmed the (informal) invitation.
In his remarks from the White House portico, President Trump attributed the day to his wife's hard work. They blew the whistles several times before moving to a card-making station for US troops.
"There's only one word for this Trump invitation: weird", the Atlantic Council's Anders Aslund tells Foreign Policy.
With the first lady and a bespectacled Easter Bunny at his side, the president raved about the "perfect weather" and touted the US economy and military, calling this a "special year". "Clearly he is pursuing his own personal policy", Aslund says.
Moscow responded by sending home 60 United States diplomats and closing Washington's consulate in Saint Petersburg.

"We have nothing further to add at this time", she said. "And look what we have: ideal weather".
Both the White House and the Kremlin said at the time the two presidents discussed meeting in person. Trump later described the call as "very good" and said he planned to meet with Putin "to discuss the arms race, which is getting out of control".
The invitation is also just the latest example of the president seeming to be on a different page from the rest of the administration when it comes to Russian Federation.
After spending the morning tweeting about the fate of DACA recipients - undocumented immigrants brought to the USA illegally as children but protected under the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program Trump ordered ended - the president fielded a reporter's question on the topic and declared Democrats at fault.
There's also the issue of what might happen should the meeting actually take place.
The Easter bunny's appearance at the White House Easter Egg roll isn't new, but that didn't stop it from sparking a ton of annual online fun. The talks were a prelude to Trump's first meeting with Putin at the Group of 20 summit last July.
"We have two USA policies on Russian Federation. And we're gonna make it bigger, better and stronger", Trump said before briefly discussing military funding. "This is as bad as it can get".
