China is attempting to “meddle” in the forthcoming US mid-term elections, President Donald Trump told world leaders during a United Nations (UN) Security Council meeting.
“They don’t want me or us to win because I am the first president to ever challenge China on trade,” Mr. Trump said today.
“We are winning on trade, we are winning at every level,” he said, without offering proof of his claim.
The US congressional mid-terms are due to be held on November 6.
“We don’t want them to meddle or interfere in our upcoming election,” Mr Trump said, as he opened the meeting of the UN Security Council in New York.
According to BBC News, in an interview last month, US National Security Adviser John Bolton said Russia, North Korea, Iran, and China are all potentially planning to meddle in US elections.
