White House national security adviser John Bolton said Sunday in an interview that the 2018 US elections were facing a threat not just from Russian Federation, but from China, North Korea, and Iran as well.

The White House is taking steps to prevent meddling in the 2018 midterm elections by China, Iran, and North Korea, according to national security adviser John Bolton.
Raddatz asked Bolton if he had seen anything specifically related to China trying to meddle in USA elections in the past, but Bolton said he couldn't answer.
However, the country has given no indication it is willing to give up its weapons unilaterally as the Trump administration has demanded.
However, several members of the US negotiating team, speaking on the condition of anonymity, said they had seen no progress toward denuclearisation and no sign that North Korea was prepared to negotiate seriously until the United States promised relief from sanctions in return.More news: Trump Administration Deports Actual Nazi Who Worked as a Death Camp Guard
Praising Mr. Bolton as a "tremendous friend" of Israel, Mr. Netanyahu applauded U.S. President Donald Trump's time in office, highlighting his role in driving the move of the U.S. Embassy to Jerusalem and pulling out of the "terrible" 2015 JCPOA nuclear deal with Iran.
"I like him. He likes me", he said.
He also offered no details on the timing or venue.
