The United States has not seen any shift from previous U.S. elections in Russia’s preference for the winner of the 2024 presidential vote, indicating Moscow’s continued favor for Republican Donald Trump, a U.S. intelligence official revealed on Tuesday.

During a briefing on U.S. election security, the official from the Office of the Director of National Intelligence did not explicitly name Trump when questioned if Moscow preferred the former president and presumptive Republican nominee. However, the official confirmed that Russia still leans towards Trump.

“We have not observed a shift in Russia’s preferences for the presidential race from past elections, given the role the U.S. is playing with regard to Ukraine and broader policy toward Russia,” the official stated.

The official added that the United States has not detected any plans by foreign nations to “degrade or disrupt” the U.S. ability to hold the 2024 elections.

Nonetheless, Washington has noticed Russia beginning efforts to influence certain voter groups and denigrate specific politicians.

Contrarily, the official mentioned that China is not planning to influence the outcome of the 2024 presidential election.
