This thesis investigates the investments by the Chinese Communist Party CCP and whether they may be construed as a national security threat to the United States. China has lauded its Made in China MIC 2025 plan with an emphasis on becoming the worlds superpower. By its entry into the World Trade Organization WTO and subsequent Most Favored Nation MFN status granted by the United States, China has amassed a great deal of wealth, power, and influence around the globe. Through our research we reviewed articles, books, and papers that underscore Chinas hegemonic plans through acquisitions to support our argument. In the face of Chinas incursions into economic areas once dominated by the United States, we conclude that China has been successful thus far by its pursuit of strategic economic and infrastructure assets. As America continues to acquiesce, China will supersede the U.S. not only economically but militarily. We provide recommendations that will have immediate impacts and may help to retain Americas sovereignty as an autonomous nation.
