Trump said that he called Putin to congratulate him on winning his fourth term in office, and listed policy concerns that the two leaders meant to discuss in the future, including the "out of control" arms race.
Trump "emphasized the importance of denuclearizing the Korean Peninsula", the White House added in a separate statement.
He said Trump had "insulted every Russian citizen who was denied the right to vote in a free and fair election to determine their country's future".
With U.S. -Russian relations at a long-time low, Peskov said, "Putin remains open for normalizing relations with our American partners where it is in our interests".
Putin has struck a softer tone toward the West since Sunday, saying he has no desire for an arms race and would do everything he could to resolve differences with other countries.
U.S. officials as recently as last week promoted the idea of a Russia-U.S. meeting in the near future in order to discuss the arms race and crises in Ukraine, Syria and North Korea.
Putin denied that Russian Federation had any role and called the claim "nonsense". They met on the sidelines of an worldwide summit in Germany last summer and again more informally at another gathering of world leaders in Vietnam in November.
Other western leaders have called Putin following the Russian election, including the German chancellor, Angela Merkel, and President Emmanuel Macron of France. Trump has said there was no collusion between his presidential campaign and Russians.
