During a meeting of the U.N. Security Council yesterday, President Trump claimed, without evidence, that China is meddling in the 2018 us midterm elections to punish the Republican Party for his anti-China policies.
"They do not want me, or us, to win", Trump told the Security Council, "because I am the first president ever to challenge China on trade, and we are winning on trade".
Trump's remarks appear consistent with a White House strategy, devised in the immediate aftermath of his Helsinki summit with Russia President Vladimir Putin, to spread blame for election interference beyond Russia to include other countries such as China.
China "did not and will not interfere with any country's domestic affairs", Mr. Wang said.
There are concerns that the November elections could also be vulnerable.
Trump laid out the allegation Wednesday when he chaired a meeting of the United Nations Security Council. It may raise questions as to why Trump only seems concerned with election meddling when it doesn't work in his favour. "They also know that I am the one that knows how to stop it", Mr Trump tweeted on 18 September.
Much like Russia, China is more than capable of interfering in a USA election; but that far from means they did.
"They don't look like ads, they look like editorials and they're not - they're by China", Trump said.
A government media bulletin this summer described the country's tariff strategy as aiming to "strike accurately and carefully, splitting apart different domestic groups in United States". China, on the other hand, is interfering on behalf of Trump's opponent, according to the president.
Who will leave Man United first - Pogba or Mourinho?
I think teams are scared when they see Man United attacking and attacking. "Through those young mid-twenties, he upped my level and Chelsea's level".
Trump insisted at a news conference on Wednesday that "they did not laugh at me".
He said: "Regrettably we find China has been trying to interfere in our upcoming 2018 election and against my administration".
Chairing the Council for the first time, Trump made no reference to suspected Russian meddling in the 2016 USA election and provided no evidence for his allegation about China, which Beijing immediately rejected during the same meeting. Although some journalists in the USA have criticized the practice as unethical, it has become common for countries and companies to strike deals for this kind of paid content that does not go through a newspaper's editorial channels.
Earlier in September, Mr Trump directed officials to impose tariffs on $200bn (£151bn) in Chinese goods - the latest move to combat what the USA says are China's unfair trade practices, such as state subsidies.
Instead, Trump zeroed in on China's propaganda efforts to flood the heartland with advertisements and statements against his billions of dollars in punishing tariffs.
While meeting with Netanyahu on the sidelines of the UN General Assembly on Wednesday, Trump said "deals have to be good for both parties", but that he thinks the Palestinians "actually want to do something".
Trump praised his personal relationship with China's Xi Jinping and said he would call him on Thursday.
Earlier this month, Trump threatened more tariffs on Chinese goods - another $267 billion worth of duties that, together with the existing tariffs, would cover virtually all the goods China exports to the United States.
In retaliation, China slapped tariffs on $110 billion of USA goods, targeting soybeans and other agricultural products aimed to hit Trump's core supporters the hardest.
"I haven't received any briefing on this and would have if it was a serious threat", he said.
