Headline:  Russia Continues Interfering in Election to Help Trump, U.S. Intelligence Says.  But a new assessment says China would prefer to see the president defeated, though it is less clear how much Beijing is doing to meddle in the 2020 campaign to help Joseph R. Biden Jr.

Russia is using a range of techniques to denigrate Joseph R. Biden Jr., American intelligence officials said Friday in their first public assessment that Moscow continues to try to interfere in the 2020 campaign to help President Trump.

At the same time, the officials said China preferred that Mr. Trump be defeated in November and was weighing whether to take more aggressive action in the election.

Those conclusions were included in a statement released by William R. Evanina, the director of the National Counterintelligence and Security Center.

But officials briefed on the intelligence said that Russia was the far graver, and more immediate, threat. While China seeks to gain influence in American politics, its leaders have not yet decided to wade directly into the presidential contest, however much they may dislike Mr. Trump, the officials said.

The assessment by Mr. Evanina suggested the intelligence community was treading carefully, reflecting the political heat generated by previous findings: The White House has objected to conclusions that Moscow is working to help Mr. Trump, and Democrats on Capitol Hill have expressed concern that the intelligence agencies are not being forthright enough about Russia’s preference for him and that the agencies are introducing China’s anti-Trump stance to balance the scales.

While Russia can be bad I feel that China and/or another non Christian country is involved.

No one should be meddling. Since everyone hates Trump, especially Russia and China, why would either want to help him get elected? That makes no sense. Maybe someone can explain it to me so I understand.
