Former Obama adviser Susan Rice said Friday that the country is “under attack” by the Trump administration.

Appearing on “CBS This Morning,” the former national security adviser addressed President Trump’s controversial comments suggesting that China “should start an investigation” into the business dealings of presidential candidate Joe Biden’s son.

“I couldn’t believe it,” Ms. Rice said of the remark. “Every day we hear something new that causes you to say, ‘Did that really happen?’ This, for me, was qualitatively different.

“The president of the United States was welcoming and inviting our principal foreign adversary to intervene in our election again just as he did in 2016 with Russia,” she alleged.

“What worries me so much is, for the first time that I can remember, our democracy is under assault,” she continued. “Our country is, in effect, under attack. And that attack is coming now from within. It’s coming from 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue. And for all the security threats I saw as national security adviser, all the challenges we faced, I never thought I’d see that.”

Ms. Rice is promoting her forthcoming memoir, “Tough Love: My Story of the Things Worth Fighting For,” which releases Tuesday.
