Do you think that the trade wars sponsored by the USA administration may lead to military conflict?

The first world war rose out of trade and other tensions between the western allies in Europe and Germany and its allies. The USA currently is using trade to provoke changes in world trade and political policies in other lands that the USA administration sees as advantageous for the USA. China, Russia, the EU, Canada, Mexico and other nations are all in the sights of the USA administration and there is increasing reaction from those nations against what the USA administration is doing. There's also increasing mistrust towards the USA as a reliable trade partner and military ally.

There may be a danger of the USA administration walking other nations and itself into military conflict without that being an intended result of the trade wars and other policies that are influencing USA relations with other nations.

Well, war does create an economic boom. Look at Germany in WW2. Massive depression after WW1 because of the sanctions put on them in the treaty of Versailles. Who knows, maybe this is the goal? Maybe not a world war but conflict somewhere on a large enough scale.
