Trump personally paid China $US188,561

US President Donald Trump sought help from Chinese President Xi Jinping to win 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 going on sale.

Donald Trump has a bank account in China, according to The New York Times.

The account is controlled by Trump International Hotels Management LLC – which tax records show paid $US188,561 ($266,876) in taxes in China while pursuing licensing deals there from 2013 to 2015, the newspaper reports – making China one of only three foreign nations alongside the UK and Ireland where Mr Trump maintains a bank account.

The New York Times has dug back into the US President’s tax returns, which it obtained and published details of last month, to highlight his own financial connections as he and other Republicans ramp up attacks on Democratic nominee Joe Biden as being soft on China, amid new revelations about his son Hunter Biden’s business dealings there.
