  • President Donald Trump addresses the 73rd session of the United Nations General Assembly Tuesday Sept. 25 2018 at U.N. headquarters

The president went on to claim that China is looking to meddle in the USA midterms because of the burgeoning trade war between the two nations.

"We found that China has been trying to interfere in 2018 election against my administration", the president said as he chaired a meeting of the United Nations Security Council.

The Palestinians see in these statements tea leaves of a plan that will attempt to redefine the terms of their cause, in which they seek sovereignty and independence from Israel in a two-state solution - a term the administration has yet to use.

Trump has slapped tariffs on $250 billion in Chinese goods as part of an escalating trade war between the two countries, and he may have been referring both to Chinese counter-tariffs that have targeted politically sensitive industries, especially in Midwest states Trump won, as well as a Chinese public-relations campaign directed at the same areas.

"Kim Jong-un, a man I have gotten to know and like, wants peace and prosperity for North Korea", Trump said.

The Palestinians have boycotted Trump's administration since December, when he recognised the disputed city of Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.

"China's market distortions and the way that they deal can not be tolerated", Trump said on Tuesday during his speech to the United Nations. criticizing China for their unfair trade practices. "We are aware that Russian Federation is not the only country that has an interest in trying to influence our domestic political environment", Coats said at the time.

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. "Israel got the first chip and it's a big one".

Moving the embassy from Tel Aviv triggered considerable protest from the Palestinians and expressions of condemnation from many American allies who anxious about further violence that could destabilize the fragile region.

The Trump administration's long-promised detailed proposal for future peace talks has still not been released, despite several hinted-at announcement dates.
