Earlier this week the President all but acknowledged the Chinese hacking efforts.
"So what else is new with China? What else is new?" the President said in the White House Rose Garden on Monday when asked by Steve Holland, a reporter for Reuters.
"I'm not happy with China," Mr. Trump added. "So now you're telling me they're hacking? So, I just say this, Steve: What else is new? We're watching it very closely."
In a series of recommendations to researchers, the FBI said anyone doing work related to the Coronavirus should assume - that if they are getting publicity in the news media - then they are probably going to get attention from hackers as well.
