President Donald Trump will make his first visit to China as he accepted his Chinese counterpart Xi Jinping’s invitation, the official Xinhua news agency said Friday. Xi, who is in the U.S. on a two-day visit along with his wife Peng Liyuan, urged cooperation with the U.S. on investment, infrastructure, and energy.
Trump welcomed Xi to his Mar-a-Lago Club resort in Florida for their first summit where the two men had “developed a friendship” as they sat for dinner. Before arriving at his Florida resort, Trump said the two main issues of Thursday’s meeting would be North Korea’s nuclear programme and trade with China.
“We have been treated unfairly and have made terrible trade deals with China for many, many years. That’s one of the things we are going to be talking about. The other thing of course is going to be North Korea,” Trump said.
