President Donald Trump boasts of 'very, very large brain'

The Latest: Trump meets with Israeli Prime Minister

Despite damage control efforts by his administration, Trump repeated his claims that China is trying to meddle in the upcoming midterm elections because they oppose his tough trade policies.

"In my remarks yesterday to the United Nations General Assembly, I laid out my administration's commitment to building a more just and peaceful future", Trump said.

Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi listens as President Donald Trump speaks during a United Nations Security Council session, at U.N. headquarters in New York, Sept. 26, 2018.

Now, I should say, Judy, China has invested in swing states and swing districts long before Trump became the president, in order to have some political influence.

Trump was broadly criticised after he appeared to side with Russian President Vladimir Putin over the USA intelligence community on the subject when they met in Helsinki, Finland, in July.

"On many levels now, we are starting to see the relationship between Beijing and Washington gradually unravel".

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 did not provide any evidence for the allegation.

"I don't like it when they attack our farmers, and I don't like it when they put out false messages", Trump said. One month ago, he tweeted, "All of the fools that are so focused on looking only at Russian Federation should start also looking in another direction, China".

"We did not and will not interfere in any country's domestic affairs". Chinese officials did not immediately respond to a request for comment on the remarks by Trump, who was chairing the Council meeting.

Like the U.S., China has a permanent seat on the U.N. Security Council.

China later denied Trump's accusation.

Mundo say PSG, Juventus and Real Madrid are other clubs interested in landing the midfielder. Reports claim Mourinho delivered this blow to Pogba in front of his United team-mates.

Trump opened Tuesday's speech by boasting about an American economy that he says is "booming like never before".

"As the largest importer of USA soybeans, China is a vital and robust market we can not afford to lose", the supplement quoted Davie Stephens, vice president of the American Soybean Association and a Kentucky soybean grower, as saying, according to Bloomberg.

At the U.N., Trump seized his opportunity to assert American independence from the global body.

"She's saying Russia, Russia, Russia, but I don't - maybe it was".

"China has been taking advantage of the United States on trade for many years".

During the 2016 election, Russian intelligence agents hacked into the email systems of the Democratic Party and its officials, secretly directed the release of the hacked material, and engaged in a social media influence campaign - all "to help President-elect Trump's election chances", according to a US intelligence report released in January 2017.

"I don't think that we're seeing a fundamental shift in anything", he said.

"We had fun", Trump said.

President Trump endorsed a two-state solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.

The European Union, also hit by USA tariffs, has responded with carefully targeted retaliatory tariffs aimed at key political districts, including Wisconsin-made Harley-Davidson motorcycles and Kentucky bourbon.

Since taking office, Trump has removed the US from the Paris climate accord, promoted protectionist tariffs and questioned the value of North Atlantic Treaty Organisation.
