“The Chinese had planned by mid-century to dominate the world, with their trade routes, with their military, with their diplomatic power. But with the pandemic, they just sort of moved up the timeframe. They think they can make their move now. They think they’re going to come out of this period as the dominant superpower,” McFarland told Newsmax TV’s Tom Basile.
Former deputy national security adviser in the Trump administration K.T. McFarland told Newsmax TV on Wednesday that the outbreak of the novel coronavirus has accelerated China’s plans to become the world’s dominant superpower to an immediate goal.
