China is geographically encircled by allies of the United States. This is part of a long-term plan, and a continuation of such concepts as Mackinder's Heartland theory and Cold War containment.

The renewed focus officially started in 2012, with President Barack Obama's Pivot to Asia[1], a large scale redeployment of US military resources to East Asia, followed by diplomatic, economic and propaganda offensives.

President Donald Trump focused on the economic aspects of the strategy, and made a major contribution to making a large proportion of the US population accepting the notion of China as an enemy.
