China's Foreign Minister rejects claim of Chinese meddling in upcoming United States election

27 September 2018

Trump told the Security Council he will ensure that Iran never acquires nuclear bomb.

Looking at his adviser and son-in-law Jared Kushner who leads the United States efforts, Mr Trump said "Jared, who's so involved, he loves Israel. but also, he's going to be very fair with the Palestinians".

"After that, the United States will impose new sanctions, tougher than ever, to counter Iran's entire malevolent behavior", he added.

Trump says during a news conference in NY that Canada has treated the USA "very badly" during the trade talks.

Later Wednesday, Trump said in a tweet: "China is actually placing propaganda ads in the Des Moines Register and other papers, made to look like news".

During a roughly 10-minute speech, Trump made no reference to allegations that Russian Federation meddled in the 2016 U.S. election that brought him to power.

Trump is talking up news that the US and Japan will open negotiations on a bilateral trade agreement.

At a press conference late Wednesday, reporters pressed Trump to provide evidence backing up his claim of Chinese meddling.

"He may not be a friend of mine anymore but I think he probably respects me", said the president, who said the USA economy was easily weathering the impact of the trade dispute.

President Donald Trump accused Beijing of seeking to disrupt the USA midterm elections and steer votes in key battleground states toward Democratic candidates seeking to regain control of the House and Senate after years in the political wilderness.

Bromwich, a lawyer for McCabe, told the Times his client "has no knowledge of how any member of the media obtained those memos". Rosenstein responded to the story in a statement: "The New York Times's story is inaccurate and factually incorrect ".

Dan Coats, the director of national intelligence, told reporters September 12 that China was one of several countries with "capabilities" to interfere in the elections.

Trump has slapped tariffs on $US250 billion ($343 billion) in Chinese goods as part of an escalating trade war between the two countries, and several of his advisers said he was likely referring both to Chinese counter-tariffs that have targeted politically sensitive industries - especially in Midwest states Trump won - as well as the Chinese public relations campaign.

"We have evidence. It will come out". Vice President Mike Pence is expected to elaborate on the alleged Chinese interference in remarks to be delivered next week at the Hoover Institution in California.

The president has withdrawn the US from the 2015 nuclear accord with Iran, accusing the country of destabilizing actions throughout the region and support for terrorist groups like Hezbollah.

Mr Trump said he rejected a meeting with Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau because "his tariffs are too high and he doesn't seem to want to move and I told him forget about it. Deals have to be good for both parties". A year ago at the U.N., Trump belittled its leader Kim Jong Un as "Rocket Man" and threatened to annihilate the country, but on Wednesday he touted the "the wonderful relationship" with Kim and teased that details of a second summit between the two men could be released soon.

Wearing an earpiece, Trump alternated between listening to simultaneous translation as other leaders and ministers spoke and scanning the room or his prepared notes.

A Chinese delegate shrugged when he heard Trump's statement via translation in the general assembly.

Macron said Paris had unwavering friendship toward Israel, but called on Israel to end policies that undermined the possibility of a peace agreement. "And we can do it with you".

Speaking in triumphal terms, Trump approached his address to the world body as something of an annual report to the world on his country's progress since his inauguration. He also claimed his administration had accomplished more in the less than two years he's held office than any other administration at the same point.
