Trump had said he fired FBI director James Comey previous year in part because of his earlier investigation into Russian Federation and the 2016 election.
Asked again about a possible Mueller interview, Trump said, "I'll speak with attorneys".
"It's got to include the wall. without the wall, it all doesn't work", Trump said.
Trump, who was asked if he would be willing to be interviewed, or would set any terms and conditions, went on to criticise the way in which the Federal Bureau of Investigation interviewed his old rival Hillary Clinton about her use of a private email server as secretary of state.
He claimed he cared very strongly about the environment, but justified his decision to pull the United States out of the Paris accord by describing it as "a bad deal".
