John McCain released a biting statement accusing Trump of 'congratulating dictators on winning sham elections'.
Trump congratulated Vladimir Putin on his victory in the presidential elections in Russian Federation.
"We don't get to dictate how other countries operate", Sanders said.
Trump did tell reporters that he would meet with Putin in the "not too distant future".
US President Donald Trump speaks during a round table meeting with members of law enforcement about sanctuary cities in the Roosevelt Room at the White House in Washington, on March 20, 2018.
Trump told reporters at the White House he had spoken with Putin, two days after the Russian strongman sailed to a fourth term as president, and with ties strained by the Cold War-style intrigue over the poisoning of a Russian turned British spy.
The press secretary said the Trump administration would maintain a strong position the n Russian Federation when necessary, including by imposing sanctions and opposing Moscow's activities in Ukraine.
The White House responded to McCain's criticism on Tuesday, saying it is "important to have a dialogue with Russian Federation so we can focus on areas of shared interest".
Neither did they address Washington's imposition last week of a new round of sanctions against Moscow created to punish Russians responsible for attempts to interfere in the 2016 U.S. presidential elections.
Trump is not the first commander in chief to call Putin to congratulate him on winning re-election.
Sanders said during Tuesday's briefing that Trump and Putin did not discuss Russia's alleged election meddling in the 2016 U.S. presidential election or the poisoning of former Russian intelligence officer Sergei Skripal in the United Kingdom.
Trump has personally faced scrutiny for what Democrats and some Republicans have called his reluctance to forcefully condemn aggressions by Russian Federation, most notably the plot to interfere and disrupt the USA presidential race. The United States has not taken similar action against Russian Federation for the attack, though the Trump administration last week sanctioned 19 individuals and five entities for their roles in the 2016 campaign meddling.
The Kremlin also said on Tuesday that Trump congratulated Putin on his win during their call and the leaders spoke "in favor of developing practical cooperation in various areas, including in ensuring strategic stability and combating worldwide terrorism".
According to the statement, Putin and Trump also exchanged views on the issues of economic cooperation. "In particular they underlined the importance of coordinated efforts to limit an arms race".
