His comments were made during a wide-ranging interview with the news programme 60 Minutes on CBS.
"You see, China has 1.4 billion people", Cui said.
Cui also dismissed as "groundless" a suggestion by Vice President Mike Pence that China has orchestrated an effort to meddle in US domestic affairs. "I'm saying Russian Federation, but I'm also saying China". After alluding to it in recent remarks, the president launched a full and frontal attack on China at a United Nations security council meet he chaired recently, eliciting a quick and sharp rejoinder.
So far, talks with China on trade have been "unsatisfactory", Kudlow said.
US Attorney General Jeff Sessions, who was a key adviser for the Trump campaign in the run-up to the 2016 presidential elections, was questioned in the case of the alleged Russian meddling in the elections in January. Why should he have recused himself?
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 United States intelligence's assessment that Russia interfered in the 2016 election and to the Russian president's denial of it. Why should he have recused himself?
The investigative journalism outlet Bellingcat last month identified undercover Russian military intelligence officers as likely suspects in the Skripal poisonings, and in the later homicide via poison of British citizen Dawn Sturgess, whose husband found Novichok disguised in a perfume bottle on the street near the town of the Skripal poisonings. "I think it's a very unfair investigation because there was no collusion of any kind", he said.
Thirty-two people have been charged or pled guilty in Mueller's investigation. President Trump's campaign chairman, top campaign aide, former national security advisor and longtime personal attorney are all cooperating in the inquiry, which the President calls a witch-hunt.
The head of fixed income at Matthews Asia, Teresa Kong, said, "When the repercussions start to take a toll on the economy, Trump might consider pulling back".
"I think something's happening". I think there's probably a difference. "But I don't know that it's man-made". Give me a break.
In June 2017, Trump withdrew from the Paris climate agreement, while appointing an unparalleled crew of climate-change deniers to his administration and reneging on President Barack Obama's pledge by 2025 to reduce America's greenhouse gas emissions by 26% to 28% (from 2005 levels).
