America had no achievements at U.N. General Assembly: Iran president

With the elections less than two months away, USA intelligence officials have said they are not now seeing the intensity of Russian intervention registered in 2016 but are particularly concerned about activity by Russia, China, Iran and North Korea.

US President Donald Trump has accused China of attempting to interfere in the upcoming congressional elections, claiming the Chinese are motivated by opposition to his tough trade policy.

Harry Kazianis with the Center for the National Interest told CBN News, "China is likely using bots and other artificial intelligence to influence social media accounts".

Mr Trump's speech to the United Nations was met with ripples of laughter from world leaders when he opened with: "In less than two years my administration has accomplished more than nearly any administration in the history of our country". This summer, reports also emerged that Russia's GRU intelligence agency, with an eye on the upcoming USA elections, had attempted to hack accounts related to the re-election campaign of Sen. Now, Trump isn't sure exactly what the person said but he's obviously aware that he was just roasted.

But the deal's other signatories have pledged to preserve the accord, and recently announced a new payment system to continue trading with Tehran while bypasing US financial restrictions.

Trump said America's economy is booming like never before and since his election, the USA has added United States dollars 10 trillion in wealth.

China's Foreign Minister Wang Yi and the Chinese delegation listen as Trump address the UN Security Council meeting on Wednesday.

"He may not be a friend of mine anymore", Trump said.

Iranian President Hassan Rouhani addresses the 73rd session of the United Nations General Assembly, Tuesday, Sept. 25, 2018 at U.N. headquarters. Trump's policies have been divisive, to say the least.

"She's saying Russia, Russia, Russia, but I don't - maybe it was", Trump said.

Third, this is the first time that we meet after the American Embassy has been moved to Jerusalem. I think everybody should understand that Israel will continue to do what is necessary and defend ourselves against Iranian aggression in Syria, in Lebanon, anywhere else.

He said he is not sure what to make of China's rejection of a Hong Kong port visit by a US Navy ship.

Trump made the audacious claim while discussing fraught US-China relations at a press conference in NY on Wednesday.

"I'll be meeting with Chairman Kim", Trump told reporters arriving at the United Nation's General Assembly.

His comments about North Korea were in sharp contrast from those he delivered at the assembly previous year, when he threatened to "totally destroy" the country and ridiculed North Korean leader Kim Jong Un as "Rocket Man" who was on a "suicide mission".
