ISLAMABAD: A top US intelligence official has warned of China, Russia and Iran meddling in the upcoming presidential elections .
“We assess that China prefers that President Trump — whom Beijing sees as unpredictable — does not win reelection,” said William Evanina, director of the National Counterintelligence and Security Center.
“China has been expanding its influence efforts ahead of November 2020 to shape the policy environment in the United States, pressure political figures it views as opposed to China´s interests, and deflect and counter criticism of China,” Evanina said in a statement.
