Trump states that China has been buying up a significant amount of U.S. farmland, and reports show that Chinese owners have been increasing their ownership of U.S. agriculture for many years.
In 2021, Politco released an article about the subject. It can be quoted as saying…
By the start of 2020, Chinese owners controlled about 192,000 agricultural acres in the U.S., worth $1.9 billion, including land used for farming, ranching and forestry, according to the Agriculture Department.https://www.politico.com/news/2021/07/19/china-buying-us-farms-foreign-purchase-499893
Trump is also stating that China has become involved in the U.S. Energy sector. Bloomberg released a report in March of last year detailing that China resells U.S. natural gas to Europe at a tremendous markup and profit.
A 2021 report by the U.S. Naval War College revealed that China has ownership stake in 5 major U.S ports. Ports that are essential to the function of the U.S. Economy.
Through an extensive Chinese program called the ‘Belt and Road Initiative’, China has been able to build and maintain control of infrastructure across the world.
Just after the United States was embarrassed with its withdrawal from Afghanistan in 2021, China immediately seized the opportunity for economic infiltration.
They made a deal with the new government of Afghanistan just weeks later. Allowing China unfettered access to the rare earth minerals that Afghanistan has such an abundance of.
Just days ago, China made a new deal with Afghanistan for oil extraction.
