Putin, Mr. Trump said at a news conference with U.K. Prime Minister Theresa May last week that Obama "failed very badly with Crimea - I wouldn't have done that".
He also said in the interview, taped Saturday, that he "hadn't thought" about asking Putin to extradite the dozen Russian military intelligence officers indicted this past week in Washington on charges related to the hacking of Democratic targets in the 2016 US presidential election.
The official Twitter account of the Russian foreign ministry liked the tweet, shortly before posting a response saying: "We agree".
Newspaper Komsomolskaya Pravda dismissed the US investigation into Trump's "mythical work for the Kremlin", and praised Trump for meeting Putin "despite opposition from his own elite and the hysterics of the media".
"My people came to me, Dan Coats came to me, some others, they said they think it's Russia", Trump said at the news conference. John Cornyn, had warned the president to be wary of Putin.
Coats has maintained an extremely low profile, rarely making public comments, since President Trump appointed him previous year.
He added: "Russia is a foe in certain respects".
"Well, I might", Trump replied.
But the talks, which are being held under closed door with just the presidents' interpreters in the room, haven't a set agenda.
Trump is typically depicted as a tool of the "deep state" in Russia's state-run media, which sometimes fans conspiracies and casts USA and western efforts to pressure or sanction its officials as having dark motives.
Friday's charges against the 12 Russian officers alleging they hacked Democratic computer networks in 2016 represented the most detailed US accusation yet that Moscow meddled in the election to help Trump.
Some protests were also expected by anti-U.S. President Donald Trump demonstrators, and security was expected to be high in the city, even if Brussels resident Jean Caluvar said he would not demonstrate against Trump as he believes the president he is a man who can follow through on his promises. "But I have a lot of respect for Dan".
"That changed", Trump said, "As of about four hours ago". Their first meeting came last July when both took part in an worldwide summit and continued for more than two hours, well over the scheduled 30 minutes.
"I'm sure we'll be meeting again in the future often", he said.
The president also told CBS News in an interview that he "hadn't thought" about asking Putin to extradite the dozen Russian military intelligence officers indicted this past week in Washington on charges related to the hacking of Democratic targets in the 2016 United States election. Unlike Singapore, where Trump met Kim, there is no expectation that a document will be produced from this summit.
In Montana this month, Trump scoffed at the idea Putin was an enemy dedicated to zero-sum combat with the United States.
Trump did not respond; Putin appeared to smirk.
There are multiple reasons why it's good for the two Presidents to talk given critical national security issues including the war in Syria, North Korea, fraying arms control agreements and the desperate state of relations between two nuclear powers with the capacity to wipe out humanity. "As we welcome the presidents to the summit in Finland, we want to remind them of the importance of free press".
The muddied waters have deepened critics' concerns that Trump is not taking seriously enough threats to the USA electoral system. Van Hollen said Trump "isn't willing to protect the integrity of our democracy in the United States, so Congress has to act".
