The DNC in April sued the Russian government, the Trump campaign and WikiLeaks, alleging that they conspired to aid Trump in the 2016 election. The DNC allege that by hacking and publishing the committee's emails, multiple individuals and groups were part of a larger conspiracy to damage Hillary Clinton’s campaign and help Trump win.
Trump's campaign has dismissed the suit as "desperate."
The president's remarks come as White House national security adviser John Bolton works to hammer out details of an upcoming summit between Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin.
Bolton, who met with Trump's Russian counterpart on Wednesday, said the issue of election interference came up in their discussions.
“We did indeed talk about Russian interference in the elections and I expect it will be a subject of conversation between the two presidents as well,” Bolton said.
Russia has repeatedly denied meddling in the U.S. election, a denial the U.S. intelligence community rejects.
Trump has said he believes the assessment from "our intel agencies” that Moscow meddled in the election using cyberattacks and disinformation.
