China out to meddle in 2018 election

In his speech at the United Nations General Assembly US President Donald Trump stuck to a hard line on China

In his speech at the United Nations General Assembly US President Donald Trump stuck to a hard line on China

Trump says Beijing doesn't want him or the Republicans "to win because I am the first president ever to challenge China on trade". And we are winning and we're winning big.

In September, Trump tweeted: "China has openly stated that they are actively trying to impact and change our election by attacking our farmers, ranchers and industrial workers due to their loyalty to me".

Fleming said China's strategy-to employ everything short of conventional warfare-is very stealth.

He said he can't disclose the evidence, but that it will come out, adding that his allegation did not come "out of nowhere".

Nevertheless, Trump insisted he maintained a strong influence over the rapidly emerging world power.

Trump's address to the General Assembly on Tuesday criticized what he called the "ideology of globalism" while heaping praise on his own administration's achievements.

"For the first time, the U.S. president was asking other members not to adhere to a resolution of the very same Security Council over which he was presiding", quipped Rouhani. "We were doing it together, we had a good time".

"They weren't laughing at me; they were laughing with me".

"I believe the global community knows very well who is most used to meddling in the internal affairs of others", Geng Shuang, a spokesman for the Chinese Foreign Ministry, told reporters Thursday.

Asked about the denial of a port visit for the USS Wasp to stop in Hong Kong, Mattis said: "I'm not sure what to make of it right now". It could also be lots of other people.

His boast elicited laughter from the audience.

Prosecutors say they were allegedly seeking firearms training and were arrested in possession of five small handguns. An investigation into other potential targets is continuing.

Trump's recent condemnation of China has been sharper in tone than many of his statements toward Russian Federation about election interference.

"I like two-state solution", Trump said in his most clear endorsement of the plan as he met with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. It didn't come out of nowhere.

In July at a summit in Helsinki, Trump accepted Russian President Vladimir Putin's denials and the U.S. president describes investigations into the interference as a political witch hunt. He said Donald Trump, they don't know what to do, ' Trump said. "But beside that, we learned that they are trying to meddle in our elections".

On Friday, US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo denounced "awful abuses" committed against mostly Muslim ethnic Uighurs held in internment camps in China's northwest Xinjiang region. "I like China and I like President Xi a lot". He said that China's alleged activities were the result of an ongoing trade dispute between the two countries. Mattis told reporters he does not believe the current tensions amount to a fundamental shift in the relationship.

Later Wednesday, at a lengthy news conference in which he took questions on everything from his embattled Supreme Court nominee to trade with North Korea, Trump said that China "would like to see me lose an election" and that no country has ever stood up to China like his administration.

"We do not and will not interfere in any countries' domestic affairs".

Chinese officials consequently canceled upcoming trade talks between the two countries, as reported by The Wall Street Journal.

With cable news chyrons flashing breathless updates about both Beltway dramas, news of Trump's foreign policy moves from the United Nations, led by a new trade deal with South Korea, struggled to break through.

The US and Canada are under pressure to reach a deal by September 30.

Of course, Trump's bragging comment went down a treat on Twitter, leaving many dumbfounded by the president's incredible boast. "If the president really wants to protect elections, there are many bipartisan bills he could support".
