China urges U.S. to stop slander after Trump's meddling claim


He offered few details, but said, "Regrettably, we found that China has been attempting to interfere in our upcoming 2018 election". "We are winning at every level", President Trump said.

In August, Mr Trump's National Security Advisor, John Bolton, said Russia, North Korea and Iran are also being suspected of "interfering" in the US midterms on November 6.

China's communist government is conducting overt and covert influence operations aimed at swaying the upcoming November elections in a bid to undermine President Trump, the president disclosed on Wednesday. The ad claimed American farmers are suffering as a result of "the president's folly".

Almost $5 billion worth of US medical devices have fallen under the wrath of China's retaliatory tariffs as of this week, through the latest actions of the ongoing trade war between it and the U.S.

US officials, meanwhile, are increasingly concerned that China is no longer fully enforcing some sanctions on North Korea, and say they intend to keep up pressure in this area.

Geng Shuang, a foreign ministry spokesman, told reporters at a regular briefing in Beijing that the Chinese government does not interfere in other countries' internal affairs. Beijing on Saturday summoned the USA ambassador in Beijing and postponed joint military talks. "We refuse to accept any unwarranted accusations against China".

CGTN's Nathan King filed this report from the United Nations headquarters in NY.

Speaking in New York, the U.S. president quoted Elton John, did impressions of rival politicians, and speculated that he would be soon endorsed by "The New York Times" - "without me, you'd be out of business", he said.

But on the other hand, there are clubs like "Phoenix" or "San Antonio", which only once in the "regular" played overtime. Bookmaker offices, as a rule, estimate the probability of a draw with coefficients from 10.00 to 15.00.

The Office of the Director of National Intelligence declined to offer additional details about China's election interference efforts, including how they differed from those employed by Russian Federation, on Wednesday.

He says, "they would like to see me lose an election because they've never been challenged like this".

Trump said he had a "wonderful relationship" with Kim Jong Un after his landmark summit with the North Korean leader in June, but stressed that sanctions had to be enforced until denuclearization occurs.

Chen Daoyin, a Shanghai-based political expert, said Trump's decision to rescue Chinese telecoms giant ZTE from collapse following U.S. sanctions "can be considered as the fruit of their personal friendship".

At the UN, Trump accused China on Wednesday of using a variety of tactics to damage his chances at the vital midterm polls in November. 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.

"We do not and will not interfere in any countries in domestic affairs. I think he is preventing, or at least holding off, a near-term war with China-actual conventional war with China", Fleming said.

President Trump has already warned that an additional $267 billion in tariffs could follow if China retaliates against farmers or other industries.

A senior Trump administration official said China uses political, economic, commercial, military and information tools to influence USA public opinion and promote the interests of the Chinese government and Communist Party. A Chinese official said China can not hold talks on ending the trade dispute while the USA "holds a knife" to Beijing's neck by hiking tariffs. "We had fun.... People had a good time with me - we were doing it together.They respect what I've done".
