Currently the US dollar is the most valuable currency in the world in terms of global trade, mostly due to its ties to the oil exporters in the Middle East (Saudi Arabia specifically).
Because of America’s increasing oil independence that would very easily change, and moves being made by China could see their currency replace the US dollar in the global economy.
China doing that would be a good excuse for the US to go full nationalist-protectionist-autokracy.
Which is the best option atm.
Short of full invasion and conquest of the entire globe, with Russia as tag-teammate.
Randy Savage would be Russia is this metaphor. Obviously.
