Speaking on a tour in Auckland, the Democratic presidential candidate urged us to take the rising superpower more seriously.
“In Australia and here in New Zealand experts are sounding the alarm about Chinese efforts to gain political power and influence policy decisions,” she said.

She also praised Anne-Marie Brady, a New Zealand academic who has conducted extensive work on China’s global influence campaign.
“Anne-Marie Brady of the University of Canterbury has rightly called this a new global battle, and it’s just getting started. We need to take it seriously.”
Earlier this year, Ms Brady said her home was broken into, and three laptops, two mobile phones and an encrypted memory stick from her last trip to China were taken.
“I had a break-in in my office last December. I received a warning letter, this week, that I was about to be attacked. And yesterday I had a break-in at my house,” she told Canberra officials, according to the New Zealand Herald.
She also said people she’s recently associated with in China were questioned about their association with her.
Ms Clinton herself was the target of an influence campaign spearheaded by Russian operatives in the 2016 election, which she lost to Donald Trump.
