Trump seeks China's help to win re-election: John Bolton

Washington: Former adviser to US President Donald Trump John Bolton has revealed that Donald Trump had sought help from China to ensure victory in the re-election. Earlier, President Trump made a radically different statement, accusing China of trying to defeat him.

That President Trump, during a meeting with his Chinese counterpart in Japan in June last year, suddenly turned the subject to US elections. John Bolton spoke of China's economic potential and asked President Xi to ensure that agricultural commodities, including wheat and soybeans, were purchased as much as possible.
