President Donald Trump on Wednesday told the United Nations Security Council that China is attempting to interfere in the 2018 midterm election to hurt Republicans.
Trump spoke to the Security Council on a number of issues but made a point of criticizing the regime in China for working against global peace.
“I laid out my administration’s commitment to building a more just and peaceful future,” Trump said. “Regrettably we found China has been attempting to interfere in our upcoming 2018 election, coming up in November, against my administration.”
Trump linked Chinese actions to his trade policies, which he has touted as a way of forcing China to start playing fair in the international trade arena. He described China’s actions as retaliation for his decision to challenge them on trade policy.
“They do not want me or us to win because I am the first president ever to challenge China on trade,” Trump said. “We are winning on trade. We are winning at every level. We don’t want them to meddle or interfere in our upcoming election.”
