Communist China is beginning to rapidly increase its footprint in the Caribbean as it seeks to dethrone the United States as the world’s leading superpower.

Newsweek reported that just a couple hundred miles away from the U.S. Virgin Islands, China has started to take over the paradise island of Antigua.


China is constructing a Chinese-run special economic zone on the island that “will have its own customs and immigration formalities, a shipping port and a dedicated airline and will be able to issue passports,” the report said. “It will establish businesses offering everything from logistics to cryptocurrencies, facial surgery to ‘virology.’”

China’s encroachment on what is known as “America’s third border” has U.S. officials alarmed because China uses these developments and upgrades to a country’s infrastructure as a way to bring their own military into a new region.
