The United States remains heavily dependent on Communist China for raw materials crucial for manufacturing civilian and defense technology. Previous presidential administrations assisted the Chinese regime to develop a near-monopoly on critical minerals. They include rare earth metals necessary for electronics hardware. 

The Trump Administration was early to commit to reversing Communist China’s strategic gains in this area, but has been slow to implement. 

Rather than simply diversify US procurement of critical materials from countries apart from China, the United States should facilitate domestic production as a strategic priority.
