  • China has become the number one trading partner for several countries in Latin America and its influence continues to grow, but experts told the Daily Caller News Foundation that America’s efforts to combat it fall short.

  • “Not a single diplomat in the region ever approached the governments here in trying to push back on China,” Mario Duarte, former Secretary of Strategic Intelligence of Guatemala, told the Daily Caller News Foundation.

  • “It just seems to me we’ve had a failure of leadership across the board and that’s Republicans and Democrats, liberals and conservatives,” Gordon G. Chang, author of “The Coming Collapse of China,” told the DCNF.

  • “They’re conquering Latin America with a smile … and Latin Americans are buying it up,” Joseph Humire, a global security expert for the Center for a Secure Free Society, told the DCNF.

China’s campaign to grow its presence in Latin America has brought the country’s influence dangerously close to the U.S., but experts told the Daily Caller News Foundation that America’s efforts to combat it fall short.


The communist goliath has become the number one trading partner for several countries in the region, with Cuba becoming the latest country to sign onto Xi Jinping’s Belt And Road Initiative (BRI), a massive global project launched in 2013, in October.


“It goes in and just buys and corrupts elites like it does everywhere,” Gordon G. Chang, author of “The Coming Collapse of China,” told the DCNF.


“There’s a lot of infrastructure that Beijing is building,” Chang said. “It makes those countries dependent on China and we should be making sure that the debt trap traps not the debtor but the creditor.”
