Director of National Intelligence John Ratcliffe told Fox News on Monday that “China poses a greater national security threat to the U.S. than any other nation,” warning about the country’s meddling in the upcoming election.

“China poses a greater national security threat to the U.S. than any other nation — economically, militarily and technologically. That includes threats of election influence and interference,” Ratcliffe said in a statement.

He added that his office is “committing the IC [intelligence community] resources needed to fully understand the threat posed by China and provide U.S. policymakers with the best intelligence to counter China’s broad and deep malign activities.”

Ratcliffe said that “China is concerned that President [Donald] Trump’s reelection would lead to a continuation of policies that they perceive to be ‘anti-China,’” and that “hundreds of members of Congress” have received briefings about “its increased efforts to impact the U.S. policy climate in its favor.”

The director noted that “Fair and free elections are a bedrock of American democracy, and the IC remains vigilant against the various activities by China, as well as other threat countries and actors, which seek to affect our electoral process.”
