How likely is a war between the United States & China?
There have been about 16 cases in history like that between China & the United States. That is where a dominant power is being challenged by a rising power. In most of those cases it ended up in war.

China will use Trump for all they can get. Hes easy and greedy. It wont take long to turn him.

Not very. Countries with nuclear weapons have lots of disincentives to go to war because even if you "win", you lose.

Both countries depend on each other in trade and there is just no good reason for either side to commit an act of war against the other.

But all these cases were in the pre nuclear era. If America attacked, they would certainly respond with force.
But I don't think China will attack first. I see the POSSIBILITY of cyberwar.Source(s): No real source. Just 60 years of following current events.
