Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton
on Saturday of stealing commercial secrets and “huge amounts of government information,” and of trying to “hack into everything that doesn`t move in America.”
Clinton`s language on China appeared to be far stronger than that usually used by President Barack Obama`s Democratic administration.
Speaking at a campaign event in New Hampshire, Clinton said she wanted to see China`s peaceful rise.
“But we also have to be fully vigilant, China`s military is growing very quickly, they`re establishing military installations that again threaten countries we have treaties with, like the Philippines because they are building on contested property,” said Clinton, who was secretary of state from 2009 to 2013.
