Trump asked China's president to help him win the 2020 election says Bolton

President Trump asked Chinese President Xi Jinping to help him win the 2020 election last year during a summit in an explosive new report coming out from the Washington Post.

Trump said that if China made more agricultural purchases from American farmers it would greatly help his chances of being re-elected. This is one of the many allegations former National Security Advisor John Bolton is making in his new book, a release that Trump is trying to get the Department of Justice to stop from hitting bookshelves.

An excerpt from the book reads about Trump:

“He then, stunningly, turned the conversation to the coming U.S. presidential election, alluding to China’s economic capability to affect the ongoing campaigns, pleading with Xi to ensure he’d win. He stressed the importance of farmers, and increased Chinese purchases of soybeans and wheat in the electoral outcome. I would print Trump’s exact words but the government’s prepublication review process has decided otherwise.”

The book is already #1 on the Amazon Best Sellers list, and it still has a week to go before it comes out. According to the Post, who has a copy of the book already, it portrays Trump as an "erratic" and "stunningly uninformed" commander-in-chief.

Perhaps what is most revealing is that Bolton admits in his book that leaders like Chinese President Xi Jinping would manipulate Trump and take advantage of his weaknesses, which were obvious to them since Trump flaunts them so openly.
