    Let me get your logic: We print money to buy their goods, so they are fleecing us?

    China has built up foreign currency reserves of more than $3T.......wonder how?

    In February 2019, China owned $1.13 trillion of U.S. debt. It's the largest foreign holder of U.S. Treasury securities. The second largest holder is Japan at $1.07 trillion. Both Japan and China want to keep the value of the dollar higher than the value of their currencies. That helps keep their exports affordable for the United States, which helps their economies grow.
