Trump congratulated France on winning the World Cup, saying it had "played extraordinary soccer".

After departing the UK, Trump arrived in Finland on Sunday for a closely watched one-on-one summit with Russian President Vladimir Putin, hours after telling an interviewer that he was going into the meeting on Monday with "low expectations". At another notable point in the 30-minute conversation, Trump reportedly falsely claimed his administration's widely criticized policy of separating undocumented immigrants from the border was actually an Obama-era policy. So having meetings with Russia, China, North Korea, I believe in it.

He also told CBS that he was going into it with "low expectations".

"I hadn't thought of that", Trump said. "But I think it is highly unlikely that you'll see any change in Crimea", Mr. Huntsman said on NBC's "Meet the Press".

"This was during the Obama administration. Now you wouldn't think of the European Union but they're a foe", he said.

Hours before the Justice Department announcement, Trump complained anew that the special counsel's investigation is complicating his efforts to forge a better working relationship with Russian Federation.

"They had bad defences and they were able to be hacked".

"Nothing bad is going to come out of it, and maybe some good will come out", the president said.

The two leaders are also expected to hold a news conference to conclude the summit, where they are all but certain to face multiple questions about the indictment from USA reporters.

Trump and first lady Melania Trump departed Scotland's Glasgow Prestwick Airport at about 4:08 p.m.as they made their way to Helsinki, according to pool reports. The effort also included bogus Facebook ads and social media postings that prosecutors say were aimed at influencing public opinion and sowing discord on hot-button social issues.

Trump is blaming the Democratic National Committee for "allowing themselves to be hacked".

"He's scary for us and for the Baltic states", he said.

Democratic leaders quickly called for Trump to cancel the summit in light of the indictments. "We have to start to set them right".

It should all make for an interesting meeting of President Trump and Putin next week in Helskinki. Instead, Paul said Trump and other USA officials should focus on safeguarding upcoming elections from interference. "And you know, talking about shutting it down and "we, we.' And he says 'Oh, I meant the American people" all of a sudden, you know, he came up with excuses", the president said, adding that the incident harms relations with other countries.
