    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.

    Not very. Where would they sell their products??

    Very unlikely.

    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.

      IT IS MORE LIKELY THAT THE UNITED STATES WOULD ATTACK FIRST BECAUSE CHINA HAS PUSHED THE UNITED STATES BEYOND A POINT THAT THEY ARE WILLING TO GO
