Donald Trump said on Thursday that “China is having a field day” right now because of American surveillance secrets reportedly handed them by former U.S. spy Edward Snowden.

“Over the last year, we have been talking about them hacking us — and now, all of a sudden, China is talking about us hacking them,” the billionaire businessman told Piers Morgan on CNN. “We do far more than they’ve ever done — and they’re having an absolute field day.

“But the bigger field day is what is Snowden giving them,” Trump added. “How much information is Snowden giving them? It sounds like he’s got just about all the information we have in this country.”

Investigation: China Secretly Stockpiling Gold

In hiding in Hong Kong, Snowden reportedly has shown The South China Morning Post "unverified documents" describing an extensive U.S. campaign to obtain information from computers in Hong Kong and mainland China.

He also has promised "explosive" new revelations about Washington's surveillance targets.

U.S. officials have confirmed that Snowden, a former subcontractor for the National Security Agency, may have more secret material. He initially revealed the agency’s secret monitoring of Internet and telephone data of millions of Americans.

“Of all the places he goes for protection is Hong Kong, which is a little interesting, because that’s not a place where actually he should get that kind of protection,” Trump told Morgan. “It looks like they’re going to protect him.

“I don’t know what information he’s given them, but it could be very serious,” Trump added. “He’s a bad guy. I have no doubt that he’s a bad guy.”
