April 2 (Reuters) - Highlights of the day for U.S. President Donald Trump's administration on Sunday: RUSSIA AND THE U.S. ELECTION The top Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee accuses Trump of trying to divert Congress from its investigations of Russia's role in the 2016 U.S. election and any links between Moscow and the Trump campaign.

Michael Flynn, Trump's former national security adviser, failed to disclose payments from a Russian television network and two other firms linked to Russia in a February financial disclosure form, according to documents released by the White House.

NORTH KOREA Trump holds out the possibility of using trade as a lever to secure Chinese cooperation against North Korea and says Washington might deal with Pyongyang's nuclear and missile programs on its own if need be.

Trump's top national security aides have completed a broad review of U.S. options aimed at countering North Korea's nuclear and missile programs, a senior U.S. official says.

SUPREME COURT NOMINEE The top Democrat in the U.S. Senate says it is unlikely that Supreme Court nominee Neil Gorsuch will be able to clear a procedural hurdle to a final vote, even as a third Senate Democrat throws support behind the pick.

HEALTHCARE Trump golfs with a vocal Republican critic of his healthcare push, as he insists efforts to repeal and replace President Barack Obama's signature healthcare law are not dead.
