Prime Minister pledges compensation for dairy farmers hit by USMCA deal

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

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

China angrily denounced on Friday renewed USA allegations that it was interfering in upcoming American midterm elections.

"The relevant speech made unwarranted accusations against China's domestic and foreign policies and slandered China by claiming that China meddles in USA internal affairs and election", Chinese foreign ministry spokeswoman Hua Chunying said in a statement.

The China card was something Mexico and Canada were ready to play against the Americans when Donald Trump first came to power under a unilateralist banner of "America First".

"It shows the president can match his actions with his talk", said Sen.

China hit back furiously on Friday, branding Pence's accusation "ridiculous".

US Vice President Mike Pence said Thursday that Google "should immediately end development" of Dragonfly, a censored version of its search engine reportedly in development for China.

But at no point was NAFTA thought of as a continental us-against-the-world pact.

"To put it bluntly, President Trump's leadership is working, and China wants a different American president", he said.

"The worldwide community has already known fully well who wantonly infringes upon others' sovereignty, interferes in others' internal affairs and undermines others' interests".

We said the new USMCA is a good deal for this country, especially given the circumstances under which it was negotiated.

"China always follows the principle of non-interference in others' internal affairs and we have no interest in meddling in United States internal affairs and elections", she said.

Trudeau also signaled he's still interested in wooing Beijing.

But his statements on the November US elections were at the forefront of his speech.

"Beijing has mobilized covert actors, front groups, and propaganda outlets to shift Americans' perception of Chinese policies", Pence added.

Even so, Pence said: "As a senior career member of our intelligence community recently told me, what the Russians are doing pales in comparison to what China is doing across this country". "China wants to turn these voters against our administration".

He was also to say that Chinese officials have tried to influence business leaders to condemn USA trade actions, "leveraging their desire to maintain their operations in China".

The speech comes as the USA and China engage in an escalating trade dispute, after Washington imposed tariffs on Chinese imports and Beijing retaliated with its own taxes on American goods.

'The United States Navy will continue to fly, sail and operate wherever global law allows and our national interests demand, ' Pence said. "We will not be intimidated; we will not stand down".

Can the United States and China resolve their differences?

Pence spoke days after Trump himself accused China of attempting to meddle in the 2018 midterm elections.

The vice president cited USA intelligence agencies but offered no evidence to back up his claims, which are likely to inflame relations between Washington and Beijing, already at their lowest point in years thanks to the burgeoning trade war, policy differences and United States allegations of political interference. "But it's not just compensation, but also strategic thinking to see how we make our businesses more competitive".

The vice president, a favourite of conservative US Christians, also criticised China on human rights, voicing disappointment that rising prosperity has not led to reforms.
