US President Donald Trump accused China of seeking to meddle in the Nov. 6 U.S. congressional elections on Wednesday, saying Beijing did not want his Republican Party to do well because of his pugnacious stance on trade.
“They don’t want me or us to win because I am the first president to ever challenge China on trade,” Mr Trump said on Wednesday.
Mr Trump did not offer proof for his claim. China and the US have been in a battle over tariffs since his election.
China’s foreign minister denounced the “unwarranted accusation”.
