WASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. President Donald Trump on Tuesday accused China of actively targeting the U.S. election but offered no evidence to back up his allegation, which appeared to link the issue to ongoing trade negotiations between the two countries.

"China has openly stated that they are actively trying to impact and change our election by attacking our farmers, ranchers and industrial workers because of their loyalty to me," Trump wrote in a post on Twitter.
