Here’s Where the United States-China Relationship Stands

The United States is often criticized for conceding to China on several issues. The U.S. largely stays quiet while the communist regime is holding one million Uighurs in concentration camps and enforces brutal “Zero-COVID” policies that have resulted in the extermination of household pets and mass starvation.

The two superpowers may present a friendly diplomatic exterior, but it is not hard to see that they are both vying for international dominance. So, where does the relationship stand? China is aggressively dominating geopolitics by targeting several American strongholds.


China is attempting to overtake the United States in military dominance, that much is clear. While the United States military experiences some of the lowest recruitment numbers since the Vietnam War, China is building up its military and threatening American interests around the world, as reported in a letter by the House Armed Services’ Readiness Subcommittee to Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin.

The communist country is also stealing sensitive technological information from the United States for its military.

An intelligence report conducted by the software development firm Stride claimed that over 150 Chinese-born scientists who worked on taxpayer-funded research in the United States are now working for the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) on technologies with military applications, according to the National Pulse.

In another striking report, the Pentagon has inadvertently given taxpayer dollars to China’s People Liberation Army (PLA).

U.S. companies have been given millions in federal funding for onshore innovation to enhance the U.S. competitive edge over other foreign countries, however, without knowing, they have made it easy for China to obtain advanced information for their military through foreign sales, which presents a common pattern of China circumnavigating U.S. policy for its own benefit.

So far, 50 U.S. companies have contributed to China’s hypersonic and missile programs since 2019.


China has sought influence over American infrastructure by buying up land. A prominent Chinese billionaire reportedly purchased acreage for a wind farm near Laughlin Air Force Base, Texas in August 2021 that would have given the CCP-linked investor access to Texas’ electrical grid.

Influence Operations

The communist regime has successfully lobbied U.S. politicians, former, diplomats, Wall Street financiers, sports players, and universities, according to a report from American Pigeon. In one example, Joe Tsai, the former chief financial officer and later the executive vice chairman of Alibaba, a technological company with links to the CCP, has funneled millions of dollars into Yale University.

The donation is significant because Tsai reportedly has control over the curriculum of the university and how they treat dissent of the Chinese regime, according to Peter Schweizer’s 2022 book, “Red Handed: How American Elites Get Rich Helping China Win.”
