"I go in with low expectations," President Trump said of his Monday summit with Russian President Vladimir Putin in a CBS interview aired Sunday morning.
"I'll let you know after the meeting," he added of his goals for the encounter, which begins with private talks attended only by the leaders' translators. "I think it's a good thing to meet. I do believe in meetings. ... Nothing bad is going to come out of it, and maybe some good will come out."
Trump also indicated he will ask about extradition of the 12 Russian intelligence agents indicted by Special Counsel Robert Mueller's Russia probe Friday. "I hadn't thought of that," he said. "But I — certainly, I'll be asking about it. But again, this was during the Obama administration. They were doing whatever it was during the Obama administration." Highlighting the timeline of the election meddling is a new favorite strategy for the president; he noted it in multiple weekend tweets.
