At the time, a White House official dismissed it as a brief courtesy meeting.
Trumpreturned to Washington late Saturday after a nine-day trip to the Middle East and Europe, his first trip overseas as president.
On Twitter, the president said "Russian officials must be laughing at the USA - and how a lame excuse for why the Dems lost the election - has taken over the fake news".
Trump also wrote that "many of the leaks coming out of the White House are fabricated lies".
The 36-year-old Kushner, a NY real estate executive before joining Trump's White House staff, is married to Trump's oldest daughter Ivanka, who is also a White House adviser. He is respected by virtually everyone and is working on programmes that will save our country billions of dollars.
MCain voiced concerned about the Kushner effort to establish the secret link to Russian Federation.
The chairman of the Senate Armed Services Committee also said he believes Russian President Vladimir Putin poses a bigger threat to national security than ISIS.

A parade of senior administration officials tried to downplay the story, saying it was not all that unusual to establish "back-channel" ties with a foreign government.
Both Secretary of State Rex Tillerson and National Security Adviser Lt Gen H R McMaster have discussed that, and "in general terms, back channels are an appropriate part of diplomacy", he said. I would not be concerned about it. Kelly and [National Security Adviser] Gen.
"Any channel of communication, back or otherwise, with a country like Russian Federation is a good thing", Kelly said. And the search continues for an Federal Bureau of Investigation director to replace the fired James Comey.
The position had gone unfilled after campaign aide Jason Miller - Trump's original choice for communications director - backed out of the job in December before the president's inauguration.
Trump spent Sunday meeting with attorneys at the White House, presumably to set strategy for dealing with the Russian Federation investigation that has largely sidetracked his legislative agenda.
The Daily Mail's Francesca Chambers challenged Spicer's criticism of anonymous sources in news reports: Trump himself retweeted on Tuesday an unbylined Fox News report, which cited one unnamed source, claiming that Russian Federation had instigated the discussion of a secret backchannel with Kushner, not the other way around, as the Post had reported.
