John Bolton: Trump sought Xi's help with re-election
US President Donald Trump tried to get China's Xi Jinping to help him secure re-election, ex-National Security Adviser John Bolton's new book says. Mr Bolton says Mr Trump wanted China to buy agricultural produce from US farmers, according to details of the forthcoming book previewed by US media. He also says Mr Trump "remained stunningly uninformed on how to run the White House". The Trump administration is trying to block the book from hitting shelves.
