For a glimpse of how Donald Trump’s trade war with China may end, look at the War of 1812 fought between the US and Britain

  • The War of 1812 was fought from June 1812 to February 1815, including the British raid of 1814 that set fire to the White House
  • That conflict was born out of a trade war (a British embargo of France) and fought at least partly as a trade war (a British blockade of America)
