National Security Adviser Robert O’Brien has warned that China wants Biden to win. He also stated that China has the most sophisticated tools and programs in the world to accomplish this goal.
According to The Daily Wire:
PBS News host Judy Woodruff asked O’Brien about a recent report from the U.S. Intelligence Community that concluded that China and Iran were pushing for Biden while Russia was pushing for President Donald Trump.
“Well, it’s not just countering the Russians. It’s countering any state or organization that wants to disrupt our elections,” O’Brien responded. “Our — the free and fair elections are the foundation of our democracy. They’re what make this country a great country. And we — we’re not going to tolerate any outside country, whether it’s China on behalf of Joe Biden — and, by the way, I dispute — the one thing I would dispute, I think the Chinese have the most sophisticated global influence programs and strategies and abilities and capabilities in the world.”
“But whether it’s the Chinese, who are trying to elect Joe Biden, or the Russians, who are denigrating Joe Biden, or the Iranians or the Venezuelans or Cubans or any other country, they have to stay out of our elections,” O’Brien continued. “We have hardened our election infrastructure. We’re working with our secretaries of state across all 50 states and the U.S. territories that will be voting for president. We’re putting unprecedented amounts of money in to make sure that they’re not vulnerable, our election systems aren’t vulnerable to cyberattack.”
“And so this is something we’re taking very seriously. We’re taking it very seriously in my shop at the NSC. President Trump is taking it very seriously,” O’Brien concluded. “And, look, there is zero place in an American election for foreign powers, whatever their — whatever they want to do or whatever they — however they want to influence this country. There’s no place for it.”
China, Russia, and Iran are reportedly the biggest threats posed to the upcoming election.
