President Donald Trump, elaborating on his charge at the United Nations that Beijing is meddling in USA elections, said in a Twitter post on Wednesday that China placed "propaganda ads" made to look like news articles in an Iowa newspaper.
President Donald Trump has said there is "plenty of evidence" that China is attempting to interfere in the US midterm elections because it doesn't like USA trade policies targeting Beijing.
"Regrettably, we found that China has been attempting to interfere in our upcoming 2018 election - coming up in November - against my administration", Trump said.
"We stop negotiation for now, acting tit for tat, roll out corresponding policies, hold public opinion at a good level without escalating it, limit scope, and strike accurately and carefully, splitting apart different domestic groups in USA", the propaganda memo stated.
China "did not and will not interfere with any country's domestic affairs", Mr. Wang said.
Mr Trump's claim comes amid an ongoing special counsel investigation into whether his campaign team colluded with Russian Federation in the 2016 USA election.
The Trump administration implemented another round of tariffs on $200 billion worth of Chinese imports on Monday, while Beijing implemented countermeasures on $60 billion worth of US goods.
Trump said Wednesday that his administration would have a deal outlining a two-state solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict ready in 'two to three to four months'. "We don't want to them to meddle or interfere in our upcoming election". 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. This summer, reports also emerged that Russia's GRU intelligence agency, with an eye on the upcoming USA elections, had attempted to hack accounts related to the re-election campaign of Sen.More news: 'Truth can’t have 2 versions': Jaitley questions Hollande over Rafale claims

The two-state "solution" is mostly aspirational.
