Mr Xi Jinping has been described as America’s Kingmaker following a revelation by John Bolton who claims Mr Donald Trump asked the Chinese president for election help.
When the leaders of both countries met in Osaka last year Donald Trump applauded China’s economic capability and implore it could stand to influence his victory in critical agricultural states.
Donald Trump advised Xi Jinping to buy more US agricultural products to enhance his re-election victory, according to the national security adviser, John Bolton.
The revelation emerged in an explosive book slated to be published on Tuesday. The former adviser, in an excerpt from the book, described US president as ‘stunningly uninformed’. He alleged Trump handled foreign policies for his own political benefits.
