US mid-term polls: Americans vote in key election for Trump
United Nations, Sep 27 (IANS) President Donald Trump accused China on Wednesday of attempting to meddle in the Nov. 6 congressional elections in the United States in retaliation for the tariffs his administration has imposed on Chinese goods.

“Regrettably, we found that China has been attempting to interfere in our upcoming 2018 election, coming up in November, against my administration,” the US president told a United Nations’ Security Council meeting centering on the issue of nuclear non-proliferation, Efe reported.

“They do not want me, or us, to win because I am the first president ever to challenge China on trade and we are winning on trade, we are winning at every level. We don’t want them to meddle or interfere in our upcoming election,” Trump said.

China’s foreign minister, who was present at the Security Council meeting, denounced Trump’s accusation as being “unwarranted.”

“We do not and will not interfere in any country’s domestic affairs. We refuse to accept any unwarranted accusations against China,” Wang Yi said.

Two weeks ago, National Intelligence Director Dan Coats said that the US government had found signs of possible attempts by Russia and China to interfere in the November midterm elections.
