The way to handle them using our debt against us, is every time the threaten us with it just threaten to default on it.

nothing easier. They need us as much as we need them now.

While that would please a lot of people it would also affect the USA’s International rating which is probably not as good as it should be at present. That would not be a good thing as the Chinese and a lot of other people would dump the dollar, totally.

You do not understand the meaning of default. The Chinese would be entitled to every aspect of the US economy. Better start learning Chinese along with learning how to bow.

Yes.. there is a tipping point at which your debt to the banker defines as them owning you or you owning them. It takes a strong executive to press the latter position. Something we don’t have currently.
