The World Trade Organization just ruled that the Trump administration's trade war with China violates the body's trade rules — rules the US helped to design.

That alone isn't enough to sink the trade war into full absurdity.

But add the fact that the US trade deficit surged to its highest level in 12 years this summer, and the fact that China isn't meeting its purchasing targets, and that China hasn't made any structural changes to its economy and well...

The whole project looks completely ridiculous.
