Trump accuses China of election 'meddling' against him

For the first time, President Donald Trump called to order a meeting of the U.N. Security Council for a meeting on countering nuclear, chemical and biological weapons, and said China has been meddling in the November election in the United States.

U.S. President Donald Trump speaks as he chairs a meeting of the United Nations Security Council held during the 73rd session of the United Nations General Assembly at U.N. headquarters in NY, U.S., September 26, 2018.

Trump's meeting with Netanyahu came, symbolically, just ahead of his chairing a meeting of the U.N. Security Council about nuclear proliferation.

At a press conference after the Security Council meeting, a reporter asked Trump if he has evidence of his "significant allegation" that China is meddling in the 2018 USA elections.

The president made his remarks during his address to the United Nations Security Council in New York City.

"They do not want me or us to win because I am the first president to ever challenge China on trade, and we are winning on trade", Trump continued.

President Trump today accused China of trying to meddle in the USA midterm elections in order to thwart his aggressive trade measures against Beijing.

Trump did not go into details about how he believed China was interfering in the midterms, which could see the Republicans lose control of both the Senate and House of Representatives.

While US national security officials are at high alert for an attempt at election interference by a foreign adversary, Russian Federation has been seen as a more likely threat than China.

As a result, he seems to acquire some “lady luck” which puts the brakes on his ability to spoil the games of others. The success of Ocean’s 11 has led to the development of a new spin-off, Oceans 8 which is due to be released in 2018.

The new duties would add to tariffs the U.S. has already imposed on $50bn in Chinese goods as part of that dispute, as well as tariffs that China levied on $50bn in United States goods in retaliation. China later denied Trump's accusation. He showcased his decisions to engage with the erstwhile pariah North Korea, remove the US from the global Iran nuclear accord and object to United Nations programs he believes are contrary to American interests.

With the midterms less than two months away, USA intelligence officials have said they are not seeing the intensity of the Russian intervention registered in 2016.

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

Trump said he expects to submit the proposal that would create an independent Palestine "over the next two to three to four months".

The Palestinians reacted cautiously to Trump's remarks, noting that a two-state solution has always been the goal of peace efforts, including a broader Arab-Israeli plan that would see Arab states all recognize Israel if the Palestinians got an independent state.

He added that while he's with Netanyahu "100 percent", Israel will have to do something that is good for the other side.

President Donald Trump says he has rejected a one-on-one meeting with Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau over the tariff dispute involving the two countries.

"Kim Jong-un, a man I have gotten to know and like, wants peace and prosperity for North Korea", Trump said.

"I think probably two-state is more likely but if they do a single, if they do a double, I'm okay with it if they're both happy".
