This is not Cold War because I see no ideological conflict between the US and China. Instead, there is a small group of racists in the Trump administration who live in fear of the Yellow Peril. When they’re gone the conflict will end. Note Trump himself is likely to end the Cold War the minute it starts costing Republican votes. Something to remember is there is no popular support for conflict with China in the United States. Without at least some popular support I cannot see this conflict lasting more than year if that long.
