Trump's national security adviser, John Bolton, suggested on Sunday that the issue would come up as well, but also argued that Trump's summit with Putin would be a good way for the pair to get past the "political noise" caused by the Russian Federation probe.
Bolton said he discussed concerns about Russian meddling in the USA elections with Putin during his visit to Moscow on Wednesday, citing activities targeting congressional elections coming up in November as well as the 2016 presidential contest.
Trump has reluctantly approved the dispatch of United States anti-tank missiles to support Ukraine forces, and other senior United States officials continue to insist sanctions will remain until Moscow backs down. Trump will also speak with Putin about Russia's election meddling. We are going to talk about the election.
"So I think it still raises the question, I think the president will want to have a conversation about this and say we don't want to see meddling in the 2018 election", he added.
When asked about Trump meeting with Putin, Graham said, "I'm glad he's meeting, but I've got a lot".
Bolton met with Putin last week to lay the groundwork for the meeting and said Putin continued to dismiss allegations of interference.
The meeting would allow the leaders to cut through "political noise" about alleged Russian collusion, Bolton said.
The president has called Mueller's probe a "witch hunt".

The team won both its first matches in the tournament but has never achieved three consecutive victories in a World Cup . Meanwhile, NAIJ.com had earlier reported that Croatia got the better of Iceland by 2-1 in their last match in Group D.
"Russia continues to say they had nothing to do with Meddling in our Election!".
The president was speaking with Mario Bartiromo on "Sunday Morning Futures" on Fox News when she asked if he'd speak to Putin about allegations the Russians have interfered in American elections.
"The main rationale to have a bilateral meeting between Trump and Putin: let them discuss these issues and see exactly where there might be room for progress, or where they might find there's no room at all", Bolton said.
Russia had earlier denied meddling in the United States election campaign and Trump called special counsel Robert Mueller's probe on the Russian interference a "political witch hunt".
Asked if breaking that deal should prevent the USA from brokering a new one, Bolton channeled the non-committal Trumpian language, saying, "Well, we'll see what happens when the two of them get together".
"President Putin was pretty clear with me about it, and my response was we're going to have to agree to disagree on Ukraine", he said.
Accepting that Crimea is never to return to Ukrainian control would be a major concession to Russian Federation, which is languishing under tough worldwide trade sanctions over its actions.
"That's not the position of the United States", Bolton concluded.
