China replied as Trump accused the country with a combative series of Twitter post yesterday as claims that Beijing has imposed import duties on US goods were trending to influence mid-term congressional elections in the US.
However, Chinese Foreign ministry Geng Shuang denied the claims and said that “Anyone who has some knowledge of China’s diplomacy will know that we will not interfere in other countries’ domestic affairs.”
During a regular press conference, Geng said that “We don’t want others to interfere in our domestic politics, and we will not interfere in the domestic politics of others.”
On Monday, United States announced that it would impose tariffs on $200 billion over Chinese goods, on already targeted $50 billion.
Yesterday, after China retailed with duties on American gods with $60 billion, US President alleged China of trying to influence the elections.
President Trump Tweets saying, “China has openly stated that they are actively trying to impact and change our election by attacking our farmers, ranchers, and industrial workers because of their loyalty to me.”
Alleged over election meddling are too sensitive in the United States, which renders political maelstrom over Russia’s accusation intervention to help Trump in the 2016 Presidential vote.
