Putin probably involved in assassinations but not in US

China's ambassador to America says the Trump administration is 'very confusing' Beijing will defend itself in US trade war, says Chinese ambassador

The US president said in an interview that Mr Putin was "probably" involved in poisonings but when pushed further added that "it's not in our country". Late in the interview, Stahl asked Trump what had been "the biggest surprise" and what he had learned as President, a question unworthy of the occasion and of time that might have been spent fleshing out answers elsewhere. "I don't think they want to heal yet, I'll be honest", Trump said.

Trump has rarely ever had harsh things to say about Putin and took a lot of criticism for his performance at a joint conference in Helsinki during which the American president had seemed to have granted equal weightage to U.S. intelligence's assessment that Russia interfered in the 2016 election and to the Russian president's denial of it. "It was a very tough meeting and it was a very good meeting", Trump said about Putin.

China's ambassador to the US said Beijing has no choice but to respond to what he described as a trade war started by the U.S. When asked about who he would choose to replace Jeff Sessions as head of the Justice Department, the president answered equally earnestly, "Pillows and blankets".

Trump said he was not trying to push China into an economic depression.

During a foreign policy speech in London, former US vice president Joe Biden said Russian president Vladimir Putin wants to 'destroy the new world order'. They wouldn't able to help me at all.

It also calls the China Daily insert in many USA newspapers propaganda.

Cui also dismissed as "groundless" a suggestion by Vice President Mike Pence that China has orchestrated an effort to meddle in USA domestic affairs. The president explained that he does not believe that China is ready yet to have a trade deal. "Something's changing and it'll change back again". "We have people, Democrats, who behaved horribly during the Judge Kavanaugh - you - know what I'm saying - during the hearings for the Supreme Court, we had senators that behaved horribly", Trump said without skipping a beat.Stahl pointed out the contradiction. "I told President Xi we cannot continue to have China take US$500 billion a year out of the United States in the form of trade and other things ... and I said we can't do that, and we're not going to do that anymore".

Shi Yinhong, an global relations professor at Renmin University of China in Beijing, said there had been no sign that the United States would soften its stance.

"One of the fundamental principles in China's foreign policy is non-interference in the internal affairs of other countries", Ambassador Cui Tiankai told Fox television Sunday.
