  • Dairy farmers say new trade agreement with U.S. has ‘sold them out’

Pence is attempting to put meat on those bones, while laying out a broader case that Beijing is a threat to USA interests and a destabilizing force around the world.

"We did not and will not interfere in any country's domestic affairs, we refuse to accept any unwarranted accusations against China and we call upon other countries to also observe the purposes of the U.N. Charter and not interfere in other countries' internal affairs", he said.

"China has initiated an unprecedented effort to influence American public opinion, the 2018 elections, and the environment leading into the 2020 presidential elections", Pence said in a speech at the conservative Hudson Institute.

It acknowledged Washington had been critical of aspects of Chinese policies in the past but said this was the first time a senior official had delivered a broadside against China across such an extensive array of issues.

Vice President Mike Pence accused China on Thursday of efforts to undermine President Donald Trump ahead of the November 6 congressional elections, saying that Beijing was "meddling in America's democracy". "China wants to turn these voters against our administration". We're the most trade-dependent state in the nation, so it's great to have this with our two closest trading partners.

President Trump raised eyebrows by declaring last week, without offering evidence, that China was meddling in the midterms.

Trump is due to officially unveil the report on Friday and sign a related executive order.

USA intelligence agencies assess that Russian Federation interfered in 2016 to boost Trump over his Democratic rival Hillary Clinton through hacking and releasing sensitive documents and social media manipulation.

Apple denies explosive report of Chinese hacking on its servers
Apple added that it had repeatedly provided on the record facts to refute "virtually every aspect of Bloomberg's story relating to Apple".

Pence pointed to Trump's tough line on Beijing, particularly Trump's decision to impose $250 billion in tariffs on goods coming from the country. "And while our administration will continue to respect our "one China" policy, as reflected in the Three Joint Communiques and the Taiwan Relations Act, let me also say that Taiwan's embrace of democracy shows a better path for all the Chinese people", Pence was to say.

She said China was a "builder of world peace" with no interest in meddling in U.S. elections.

"We're anxious whenever the efficiencies of our livelihood, you know like we're 10 per cent smaller suddenly and our industry isn't as strong as it was before also on the processing side, when we don't have investment and that there are some products that won't be made in Canada and will have to be imported over and above what's been allowed".

"In one recent example, they threatened to deny a business license for a major U.S. corporation if it refused to speak out against our administration's policies", the text said, without specifying the company.

U.S. President Donald Trump said USMCA is a "historic win" for U.S. farmers, auto workers, and manufacturers. It said these include specialized alloys and rare earth metals.

'We will continue to take action until Beijing ends the theft of American intellectual property and stops the predatory practice of forced technology transfer, ' Pence said. But he pointed to a document Beijing circulated in June titled "Propaganda and Censorship Notice", which laid out a broader influence campaign, similar to Russia's ongoing disinformation campaign against the U.S.

"It makes it very hard to do business on the buyer and seller side when it is not under their control", said Gordon.

Pence also protests Beijing's construction of military fortresses in the South China Sea as well as Chinese efforts to intercept American ships carrying out naval exercises created to contest China's territorial expansion.
