At UN, Trump accuses China of ‘attempting to interfere’ with 2018 elections

Trump to U.N. U.S. 'not held hostage to old dogmas' on Mideast peace

Trump, speaking in front of world leaders while chairing the United Nations Security Council for the first time, did not present evidence for his claim, which came amid an ongoing special counsel investigation into Russia's attempts to interfere in the 2016 USA election and concerns that the November elections could also be vulnerable.

China has responded to Mr. Trump's tariffs by targeting higher duties on USA farm exports, hitting especially hard at Mr. Trump's GOP base in Midwestern and southern states.

Amid a bitter trade war between the two countries, Trump claimed that China has been trying to influence the result as it does not want him to win.

Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi told the council that "China has all along followed the principle of non-interference in other countries' domestic affairs".

Fumbles on consecutive possessions by Cousins led to Bills recoveries, and they pushed the lead to 17-0. We could say the Linval Joseph roughing the passer call on the first drive set the tone for the day.

US President Donald Trump accuses Beijing of bids to interfere with the upcoming congressional elections, saying its efforts are motivated by opposition to his tough trade policy. Tough sanctions are due to kick in against Tehran in November, and Trump warned that there would be "severe consequences" for any nation that defied them.

Marwan Bishara, Al Jazeera's senior political analyst, said Trump's accusations against China were aimed at the American audience with elections fast approaching. "We don't want them to meddle or interfere in our upcoming election", Trump told a UN Security Council meeting whose ostensible subject was on nonproliferation of weapons of mass destruction and Iran. In recent months, the Trump administration has unveiled a plan to give some $12 billion in government aid to farmers who are suffering in the trade dispute. He did not mention previously reported efforts by Russian Federation to interfere with the midterms.

Mr Trump said China did not want his Republican party to do well in the upcoming elections because he would continue imposing tariffs.

Trump said he believes Palestinian officials, who have refused to speak with USA counterparts since the U.S. announced it was recognizing Jerusalem as Israel's capital, will return to the table.

He said if they were to vote in November and vote for politicians that represent their interests, that'd change the equation. She has had to pay for repairs to her elderly parents' front porch in Yabucoa, a municipality to the Southeast of San Juan.

Trump also said Wednesday he expects his administration will release its Israeli-Palestinian peace plan proposal in the next two to four months.

"I would certainly be open to it, I'm willing to meet with anybody", Trump said on Wednesday as he arrived at United Nations headquarters.

On Tuesday, Trump had extended "special thanks" to Xi for support of USA efforts to get North Korea to commit to denuclearization.

The Trump administration has in the past said it would support a two-state solution if both parties agreed to it.

Red Cross holds disaster response training
The potential severity of Hurricane Florence has kick-started local Red Cross chapters into full-fledged assistance mode. Apple has made several donations to the American Red Cross in the past in response to natural disasters.

The Palestinians have also insisted that they will no longer accept the USA as a mediator since Mr Trump's controversial decision in December to recognise Jerusalem as Israel's capital and relocate the United States embassy from Tel Aviv.
