China doesn’t want me to win upcoming polls, Trump says

Enlarge

President Trump took aim at China and Iran while chairing a U.N. Security Council meeting on nonproliferation on Wednesday - accusing China of meddling in the USA midterms, and promising sanctions "tougher than ever before" on Iran.

China is attempting to "meddle" in the forthcoming U.S. mid-term elections, President Donald Trump told world leaders during a United Nations meeting.

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.

China has been accused of interfering in an election before, although not in the United States.

President Donald Trump for the first time endorsed a two-state solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, saying on Wednesday that he thought it was the best option for peace. "That's what I think works best ... that's my feeling", said Trump, who is attending the annual United Nations gathering of world leaders.

"The United States lost over 3 million manufacturing jobs, almost a quarter of all steel jobs, and 60,000 factories after China joined the WTO", Trump said on Tuesday. A Chinese official said China can not hold talks on ending the trade dispute while the US "holds a knife" to Beijing's neck by imposing tariff hikes.

Trump said he would like to release that plan "over the next two to three to four months, something like that".

"I like two-state solution", Trump said alongside Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on the sidelines of the UN General Assembly.

Netanyahu has said any future Palestinian state must be demilitarized and must recognize Israel as the state of the Jewish people - conditions that Palestinians say show he is not honest about peacemaking.

Netanyahu Calls Putin, Blames Syria, Iran
Putin spoke to Assad by phone Monday and informed him of the plan to provide the missiles, the Kremlin said in a statement . The Russian government announced Monday that it would be sending Syria an S-300 surface-to-air missile system.

He claimed that the "Syrian regime's butchery" was enabled by Iran and Russian Federation.

The US president explicitly backed Israel, noting the moving of the US Embassy to Jerusalem and suggesting that he saw progress on the horizon for Middle East peace.

Trump's relocation of the USA embassy from Tel Aviv also inflamed tensions.

"I took probably the biggest chip off the table".

He added that while he's with Netanyahu "100 percent", Israel will have to do something that is good for the other side.

The U.S.' exchange with China comes as a trade war between the two nations intensified.

"The U.S. will not tell you how to live and work or worship, " Trump said as he unapologetically promoted his "America First" agenda. "Deals have to be good for both parties".

Trump's remarks at the Security Council meeting followed a similar pattern to his speech before the U.N. General Assembly on Tuesday, when he alternately attacked China and praised its leader, Xi Jinping.
