Watch: At UN General Assembly, Trump Alleges that “China Has Been Attempting to Interfere in Our Upcoming 2018 Election”


While chairing the United Nations Security Council on today, President Donald Trump accused China of “attempting to interfere in our upcoming 2018 election,” the Daily Beast reports.

Trump said China does “not want me or us to win” because of his trade war with Beijing. China has committed substantial data theft, including the 2014 Office of Personnel Management hack of millions of U.S. government personnel records as well as economic espionage aimed at U.S. corporations. While there has yet been public evidence that China is interfering in U.S. elections, Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats this week vaguely warned that China was “trying to exploit any divisions between federal and local levels on policy.”
