The dynamics of Monday's meeting between the two world leaders are complicated by the allegations of Russian meddling in the US election and the special counsel's search for links between Russia and members of President Trump's campaign.
"The stories you heard about the 12 Russians yesterday took place during the Obama Administration, not the Trump Administration", Mr. Trump tweeted. "Why didn't they do something about it, especially when it was reported that President Obama was informed by the Federal Bureau of Investigation in September, before the Election?"
Mueller, appointed by the Justice Department in May 2017 to take over an investigation earlier handled by the FBI, is investigating whether Trump's campaign colluded with Russian Federation and whether the president has unlawfully sought to obstruct the Russian Federation investigation. He said the indictments are "further proof of what everyone but the president seems to understand: President Putin is an adversary who interfered in our elections to help President Trump win". "I think the DNC should be ashamed of themselves for allowing themselves to be hacked".
After interviewer Piers Morgan described North Korean leader Kim Jong Un as a "ruthless dictator", Trump agreed and said he deals with many leaders who are "pretty ruthless people". "It's very important that they meet".
The Russians are accused of hacking into the computer networks of the Democratic National Committee and the presidential campaign of Hillary Clinton.
Some of the documents and emails were released through a website identified in the indictment only as "Organization 1" - believed to be Julian Assange's WikiLeaks.
In a statement, the White House highlighted Rosenstein's remarks that no Americans had been charged.

Officials in Moscow have stuck to denying the allegations that the Kremlin was involved in scheme to sway the results of the 2016 presidential election. Republican Sen. John McCain has also said Trump should not meet with Putin unless he holds the Russian president accountable.
According to the investigation, the officers of the Russian Main Intelligence Directorate were included in the list.
They are also accused of stealing information on 500,000 USA voters after hacking a state U.S. election board.
Both accounts are alleged to be key part of the plot to interfere with the election, controlled by the indicted agents and used to leak stolen emails from Clinton's campaign and other Democratic Party accounts.
When asked to clarify whether she thought Russian election interference gave the presidency to Trump, the caller responded: "Yes, because the Russians interfered".
Was Russia listening, after all?
Rosenstein said two separate Russian units of the GRU intelligence agency stole emails and information from Democrats and then disseminated it via online personas, DCLeaks and Guccifer 2.0.
Among the victims were 500,000 registered voters whose information was stolen.
