China's Military, Economy on Track to Become World's Most Powerful, Warns Mitt Romney

Utah Republican Senator Mitt Romney warned Sunday that China is on track to becoming the world's most powerful military and economy, likely representing the most significant challenges to U.S. foreign policy. "The real the emergence of China, which is on track to become the most powerful economy in the world and the most powerful military in the world. And that represents a greater challenge over the coming couple of decades," Romney said on CNN's State of the Union.

"I think the president is increasingly aware of that challenge, as is his secretary of state, [Antony] Blinken, and I think they're looking to try to pull together our alliances to wake up to that reality and take action to dissuade China from the path of confrontation and military aggressiveness," he added.
