Some believe that the U.S. is on the verge of declaring war on China or completely cutting ties with them. However, the financial situation and economy in the U.S. has been falling due to the coronavirus, and it has threatened to interfere with the Defense budget for years to come. This could lead the U.S. to entering another Cold War, this time with China, as our budget and abilities are stretched thin. A war with China now could be disastrous as the coronavirus puts us at a strategic disadvantage due to a dwindling budget. Many are concerned if the military could afford to engage the Chinese while still holding the line in other locations.
