President Trump accusedChina of trying to interfere in upcoming US midterm elections because of the hard line he has taken on trade, airing the claim as he opened Tuesday's meeting of the U.N. Security Council in NY.
He said the Trump administration made a "second mistake" in holding a meeting of the U.N. Security Council earlier Wednesday during which 14 countries either directly or indirectly backed the nuclear agreement between Iran, the USA and five other major powers. "They do not want me - or us - to win because I am the first president ever to challenge China on trade".
According to a senior administration official, what Trump considers election interference includes Chinese retaliatory tariffs against Midwest farmers, intimidation of journalists and academics, and funding for state-controlled news outlets.
He added that since the deal was signed, the "pathways of the signatories of the JCPOA have diverged.but we still, all of us here, retain the same objective of preventing Iran from obtaining nuclear weapons, and guaranteeing strict global control on the peaceful use of their nuclear programme".
He complained that the United States "has spared no effort" to exert pressure on Iran's oil sales and banking relationships, and there is not much left for the Trump administration to do.
But Trump expressed gratitude to Iran, Russia and Syria for slowing attacks in Idlib, saying, "Get the terrorists, but I hope the restraint continues".
"We refuse to accept any unwarranted accusations against China, and we call on other countries to also observe the purposes of the United Nations charter and not interfere in other countries' internal affairs". "We refuse to accept any unwarranted accusations against China".
President Donald Trump says he has rejected a one-on-one meeting with Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau over the tariff dispute involving the two countries.
Here are his own words: "It's happened to me many times".
"He may not be a friend of mine anymore", Trump said.
The new duties would add to tariffs the USA has already imposed on $50bn in Chinese goods as part of that dispute, as well as tariffs that China levied on $50bn in U.S. goods in retaliation.
