New U.S. military budget focused on China despite border talk

The new 2020 federal budget can be summed up in three words according to Defense Secretary Patrick Shanahan: “China, China, China”. The new budget is aimed at combating a rapidly growing Chinese military. “China is aggressively modernizing its military, systematically stealing science and technology, and seeking military advantage through a strategy of military-civil fusion,” Shanahan writes.
