In the ongoing trade war initiated by the US against China, the latter has been quite restraint so far.  Apart from hitting back with punitive tariffs, China has not deployed other weapons.  But the warning has been sounded, China will continue to export rare earth, but those countires which use its rare earth to hurt China, can expect to be denied this metal so essential to the manufacture of  a wide range of precision products.  The US shoud take this warning seriously!

Go for rare earth recovery from waste. Reduce rare earth mining. Grow forest on the mines to improve ecology. Ignore the US. China cannot control what US wants to do. What China can do is to chase after innovation rigorously and lead the US. Back this up with good Chinese etiquette and disposition to foster better relationships around the world. Everyone wants to deal with genuine, compassionate and friendly people. Can't imagine anyone who wants to deal with arrogant Americans whose tech maybe is just as good as China's if China is more approachable and trustworthy.

China has more friends round the world than US has, because of US belligerent attitude to all, includng its allies!  No country is immune from US threats, in the form of tariffs, embargo etc.   Even its northern ally and neighbor Canada is a victim.

Quite possible; it does not reveal its cards to its enemy!

China has 90% of the world's rare earth, and the US imports 80% of its rare earth from China.  Goes to show how vulnerable the US is.
