ON HIS BROMANCE WITH XI

September 28, 2018

Trump once again claimed China has tried to meddle in the upcoming midterm elections in retaliation for Trump’s tough trade policies — but declined to offer proof.

“We have evidence. We have evidence. It will come out,” he teased.

Asked why he continues to praise China’s Xi Jinping if the country is trying to undermine American democracy, Trump stressed his strong relationship with his Chinese counterpart and praised the Chinese as “incredible people.”

In fact, he said, he’d be calling Xi on Thursday to check in following the question by a New York Times reporter.

“In honor of you,” he told the reporter, he’d be making the call.
