To show just how bad for us our relationship is with China, a new reported finds that we import nearly $79 billion in cellphones and other household goods from China every year, money that China then uses to build is dangerous military forces — even as Biden tears our Military down.
Per the Daily Signal:
In 2020, the year that the COVID-19 pandemic—which originated in China—hit the United States, Americans imported $61,689,114,229 in the category of “cellphones and other household goods” from China.
In 2021, Americans imported $75,104,920,094 in Chinese-made cellphones and other household goods.
In 2022, the Census Bureau reported last week, Americans imported $78,766,814,842 in Chinese-made cellphones and other household goods.
Thus, in the three years since COVID-19 first hit, the United States has increased its annual imports of “cellphones and other household goods” from China by $17,077,700,613—or approximately 27.7%.
The only import that Americans spent more money on last year than Chinese cellphones and other household goods was Canadian crude oil. In 2022, this country imported $113,465,977,527 in crude oil from our northern neighbor.
The Daily signal goes on to report on the data about our imports from other nations, too, but this info about China is proof that we really, REALLY, need to decouple from our biggest enemy.
China has a major war against us in its sights and has now built a navy that is bigger than ours so it can push its military (which is also larger than ours) to any corner of the world.
Right now, China already has more than 355 ships at its command. And that is growing every year. The U.S. Navy, meanwhile sat at 296 in 2021. And it is dwindling every year.
As to the armies, China has two million active soldiers, whereas the U.S. Army has less than 500,000.
And here we are, actually funding the growth of a military force that has pledged to kill us all!
