He now flies to Finland for a meeting with Putin.
In an interview with CBS News' Jeff Glor, which was excerpted on "Face the Nation", Trump admitted the idea of extradition hadn't even crossed his mind.
"Well I think we have a lot of foes".
Trump took to Twitter on July 14 to point out that the 12 Russians operated during the Obama administration. "They were doing whatever it was during the Obama administration". China is a foe economically, certainly they are a foe.
The United States has no extradition treaty with Moscow and can't compel Russian Federation to hand over citizens. "But, in a trade sense, they've really taken advantage of us and many of those countries are in North Atlantic Treaty Organisation and they weren't paying their bills" to meet the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation goal of each of the 29 member states of the Western military alliance spending two percent of the size of their national economies on defense.
The remark - part of a string of tweets related to the Russia probe - came on the heels of a new wave of indictments against Russian intelligence operatives accused of hacking Hillary Clinton and the Democrats and releasing sensitive stolen documents in an effort to damage her 2016 presidential campaign.
The plan is for Mr. Trump and Mr. Putin to meet Monday in Helsinki with only interpreters present and no other aides.
7th animal dies after jaguar escaped habitat at New Orleans zoo
The zoo announced it would be closed for the rest of the day Saturday and will reopen to the public Sunday at 10 a.m. The incident occurred at 7:20 a.m. local time when Valerio, a 3-year-old jaguar, slipped out of its habitat.
"It's pretty silly for the president to demand something that he can't get legally", Bolton said on ABC News' This Week. "The Russians take the position - you can like it or not like it - that their constitution forbids them to extradite Russian citizens". But, and this may be wrong, but they had much stronger defenses. I've been told that by a number of people. "I think the president can put this on the table and say this is a serious matter, we need to talk about it".
"The DNC should be ashamed of themselves for allowing themselves to be hacked".
Trump told CBS Evening News anchor Jeff Glor he believes there is value meeting with world leaders such as Putin and North Korea's Kim Jong-Un, and that there is little risk to the planned meeting in Helsinki, Finland where they're expected to discuss relations between the United States and Russian Federation and a range of national security issues.
"He's a competitor", Trump said about Putin last week.
But Deputy US Attorney General Rod Rosenstein has insisted that "the goal of the conspirators was to have an impact on the (US) election". That's the implication of the extraordinarily detailed 29-page indictment of 12 Russian military intelligence (GRU) officers handed up by special counsel Robert S. Mueller III's investigators on Friday.
Bolton said Trump would talk about the issue with Putin.
"I'm not going with high expectations", Mr. Trump told CBS about the session, which is expected to include a one-on-one meeting of the two leaders in Helsinki and a press conference afterward.

He said he "believed in meetings" but was unsure what the outcome of the Helsinki meeting would be.
"I go in with very low expectations".
"I believe it's really good".
Russian Federation "is a foe in certain respects", he told CBS in an interview recorded on Saturday.
"If President Trump is not prepared to hold Putin accountable, the summit in Helsinki should not move forward", said Republican Sen.
It also raised further questions about possible coordination between the Trump campaign and the Kremlin, as the conspirators allegedly began a spear-phishing offensive against Clinton and members of her team the same day Trump publicly called on Russian Federation to find his opponent's missing emails - a comment members of Trump's team have dismissed as a joke.
