"Nothing bad is going to come out of it (Helsinki), and maybe some good will come out", he said.

Bolton described the meeting as "unstructured" and said: "We're not looking for concrete deliverables here".

"All I can do is say, 'Did you?'" Trump said days ago at a news conference in Brussels.

Lehtikuva Lehtikuva / Reuters U.S. President Donald Trump arrives in Vantaa, Finland, July 15, 2018.

Russian Federation has said it is looking forward to the talks as a vehicle for improving relations.

As part of that effort, Russian hackers targeted at least 21 states ahead of the election and are believed to have breached the voter registration system in at least one, Illinois, investigators say.

"I can't tell you what's going to happen, but I can tell you what I'll be asking for".

Trump also said: "Much of our news media is indeed the enemy of the people". Investigators believe the incident is linked to the poisoning of a former Russian spy in March. On Sunday, British Prime Minister Theresa May told the BBC that Trump told her to sue the European Union.

"We'll be talking about Syria", he said. There is a lot in this for him.

Chants of "We Love Trump, We Love Trump" broke out as the president's motorcade passed and Trump waved. He attacks allies and admires strongmen like the Russian leader.

What are the USA hacking allegations?

More news: National Ice Cream Day means deals and freebies Sunday

On Friday, a federal grand jury indicted the 12 Russian intelligence officers on charges they hacked into Democratic campaign networks in 2016 and then stole and released tens of thousands of documents.

The top Democrat on the Senate Intelligence Committee, Mark Warner, said he was anxious about Trump being alone in the room with Putin, without his national-security aides.

Meanwhile, thousands of protesters gathered in Helsinki on Sunday ahead of Trump's arrival.

Top Democrats including party chairman Tom Perez have urged Mr Trump to abandon the talks, saying Mr Putin was "not a friend of the United States".

Trump was in Britain as part of his European trip that earlier saw him in Brussels for a North Atlantic Treaty Organisation summit and will take him to Helsinki for a summit with Russian Putin on July 16.

The U.S. president taped the interview Saturday in Scotland, a day before he was set to leave for Helsinki for the summit. Neither trip passed without controversy. Putin has met with three previous US presidents before Mr. Trump, but there has never been such a private session of this magnitude between Putin and a USA leader.

"I respect the leaders of those countries", Trump said of the European Union.

A trade war is also under way with China after the USA implemented tariffs for what it called unfair trade practices by Beijing.

He also said Europe was "losing its character" because of immigration from Africa and the Middle East.

In an interview with CBS - during which he also called the European Union a "foe" - words that are undoubtedly music to Putin's years - Trump was asked whether he had considered asking his buddy to extradite the 12 Russians accused on Friday by Special Counsel Robert Mueller of hacking Democratic National Committee and Hillary Clinton campaign emails.
