In the case of China, Clinton said: "This is an urgent problem and one we must confront immediately and together". "This is bigger than one candidate, one election or even one country".

Hillary Clinton has fears over China's growing persuasion in the Asia-Pacific, and on Thursday night issued a warning to Australia to be vigilant to outside influence and to 'protect Australia's interests'.

An Australian senator quit parliament in December over his relationship with a wealthy political donor associated with the Chinese Communist Party.
