Because Trump did not get into any specifics while making his accusation Wednesday, it's unclear if there is any additional evidence to back up his claim.

Chairing his first U.N. Security Council meeting today, President Donald Trump criticized China for its trade practices and further suggested that the country's leaders were "attempting to interfere" in the upcoming US midterm elections.

When Trump spoke about election meddling in the 2018 midterms, he did not mention Russian Federation - a country that the USA has punished with sanctions for attempting to influence the 2016 election.

China is the latest in a long line of countries being accused of meddling in US elections.

President Donald Trump, elaborating on his charge at the United Nations that Beijing is meddling in US elections, said in a Twitter post on Wednesday that China placed "propaganda ads" made to look like news articles in an Iowa newspaper. "That's what I think works best".

USA officials have not immediately responded to requests for comment after Mr Trump's claims.

However, a senior Palestinian official rejected Trump's comments in support of a two-state solution, saying his White House's policies were destroying hopes of peace.

"I like two-state solution".

But Trump also called for the enforcement of sanctions, which the United States has spent years building through the Security Council in response to North Korea's nuclear and missile tests. "We'll do other things in my second term", he said. The two nations have exchanged several rounds of tariffs. "I would say two to three to four months".

Netanyahu also said that he had discussed Russia's pledge to supply Syria with S-300 anti-aircraft missiles with the president. A day after being greeted with laughter by world leaders still uncertain how to manage his "America First" ideology, Trump explicitly backed Israel, noted the moving of the U.S. Embassy to Jerusalem and suggested that he saw progress on the horizon for Middle East peace.

Trump indicated that moving the embassy was "a big chip" the US delivered to the Israelis.

"I took probably the biggest chip off the table", Trump said. And so obviously they have to start, you know, we have to make a fair deal.

Trump said Israel is being aggressive on defense because it has to be.

"Deals have to be good for both parties", he said, adding that he thinks the Palestinians "actually want to do something".

While opening a UN Security Council meeting, Trump put it like so, per the BBC: "In my remarks yesterday to the United Nations General Assembly, I laid out my administration's commitment to building a more just and peaceful future".
