  • Trump on Israeli-Palestinian conflict: 'I like two-state solution'

At the news conference in NY, a reporter asked Trump what evidence he has to back up the accusation of election interference, which China has denied.

Asked what Israel might have to give up in return for the embassy's move to Jerusalem, Trump replied: "I took probably the biggest chip off the table".

'We have evidence. It'll come out. "I can't tell you now, but it didn't come out of nowhere, that I can tell you".

According to Trump, China has "actually admitted that they're going after farmers".

"That's right. That's what I hear", Trump said.

US President Donald Trump on Wednesday accused China of seeking to meddle in the November 6 US congressional elections, saying Beijing did not want his Republican Party to do well because of his stance on trade. "They do not want me or us to win because I am the first president ever to challenge China on trade and we are winning on trade, we are winning at every level".

The Trump administration has in the past said it would support a two-state solution if both sides agreed to it. Trump, in a meeting with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu at the United Nations, also said he wanted to unveil a peace plan in the next two to three months. Thirty-two accounts were removed from Facebook and Instagram because they were involved in "coordinated" political behavior and appeared to be fake.

"I don't like it when they attack our farmers and I don't like it when they put out false messages".

"If the Israelis and the Palestinians want one state, that's OK with me". And China is not open.

"China has all along followed the principle of non-interference", Wang said in the same session that was chaired by the United States president.

The Chinese reiterated their long-standing principle of non-interference in the domestic affairs of other countries, in response during the security council meeting earlier in the day.

Trump, speaking in front of world leaders while chairing the United Nations Security Council for the first time, made his accusation amid the ongoing special counsel investigation into Russia's attempts to interfere in the 2016 US election to help him and concerns that the November elections could also be vulnerable.

Trump said "it is a dream of mine" to secure an agreement before the end of his term in office, which ends in early 2021.

His national security adviser, John Bolton, went even further in a speech Tuesday, issuing a dire warning to Iran: "If you cross us, our allies or our partners; if you harm our citizens; if you continue to lie, cheat and deceive, yes, there will indeed be hell to pay", Bolton said. And so obviously they have to start you know we have to make a fair deal.

The White House did not provide any examples of election meddling in a hastily scheduled call on "Chinese interference" on Wednesday afternoon with a senior administration official.

But he didn't identify any specific Chinese activity that went beyond typical propaganda and retaliatory trade actions and nothing that could be compared to the covert influence operation carried out by Russian Federation in the run-up to the 2016 US presidential election. The person noted that American films with content the Chinese government doesn't approve of are commonly blacklisted.

The president added that China "has total respect for Donald Trump and for Donald Trump's very, very large brain".

Yes, he hasn't said this before, certainly not on this scale and at this platform at the United Nations, and he said this in the Security Council and at a press conference just a few minutes ago. He called Trump's claims an "unwarranted accusation" that he said Beijing would refuse to accept.
