Yes legally she can if she is married to an American citizen

I don't think so.....years ago I had dual citizenship....I was born in USA and my Parents were Canadians...at 21 I had to declare ONE (I chose USA)....Now the USA allows dual citizenship....I wonder if I were to apply TODAY if Canada would give me citizenship......

But you are not asking for Chinese one, tell us why.

I can move to China with my wife when we retire. She needs to keep her Chinese citizenship.
There is absolutely no advantage of her having American citizenship so why bother?
