Bolton says Trump asked Chinese leader for help with election
June 18, 2020
President Trump solicited Chinese President Xi Jinping's assistance in winning reelection, according to a forthcoming book from former White House national security adviser John Bolton.
Bolton describes an exchange that took place at the Group of 20 (G-20) summit in June in his new book, "The Room Where it Happened."
During the exchange with Trump, Xi referenced unnamed American political figures who were too critical of Beijing and were threatening the U.S.-China relationship.
