China firmly opposes certain US individuals and forces using China to garner votes or smearing China using the COVID-19 pandemic as an excuse, Chinese Foreign Ministry Spokesperson Geng Shuang said Monday at a press conference, amid reports of the US Republican's "Attack China" campaign.

"I have noted related reports. Why do some US forces take every chance to smear China? The answer is clear," Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesperson Geng Shuang said Monday at a press conference. 

The US accused China of "spreading fake information," "but, if the reports mentioned above are real, I can't  help asking: who is actually spreading false information? Geng questioned. 

American news outlet Politico on Friday published an internal 57-page US National Republican Senatorial Committee memo written by political consulting firm Brett O'Donnell that urges   candidates to "attacks China" as a tactic for the November 3 general election.
