  • Trump Xi Jinping

Trump arrived in Beijing on Wednesday afternoon from South Korea for a two-night stop in the Chinese capital as part of his marathon Asia tour. "I love you!" after a Peking Opera performance at the former imperial palace.

They found one such channel in his son-in-law, Jared Kushner, who helped arrange an April summit between Xi and Trump at Trump's Mar-A-Lago resort in Florida.

A signing ceremony is scheduled to take place as Trump meets Chinese President Xi Jinping.

Trump has made narrowing the multibillion-dollar USA trade deficit with China a priority for his administration - and Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross said Wednesday the deals were a step in the right direction.

Trump could also use an alternative temporary phone as another way to avoid the risk of compromising his smartphone in a country which is often accused of hacking.

Scientists: Sheep recognize faces as people
A sheep "model" of Huntington's disease has been bred, displaying similar brain and social changes as witnessed in human patients. They did this by rewarding the sheep food when they went to the picture of one of celebrities, and not an unfamiliar face.

As they exited Air Force One, Trump and first lady Melania Trump were met by Chinese and American dignitaries, soldiers standing stiffly at attention, a band playing martial music and smartly attired children waving miniature Chinese and American flags while chanting, "Welcome, welcome".

"And of course, China is doing much more than it's ever done in the past, but it's not the time for complacency or for allowing people to slip through loopholes and for a lot of that residual activity to continue", the official continued". The accusations of alleged currency manipulation, restriction of market access and intellectual property theft by China have been subdued as well.

Trump's predecessor, Barack Obama, spoke about free speech during his two visits to China, a sentiment that Trump is unlikely to express.

The Trump administration has been sending signals that it will maintain an Asian presence, for instance, boosting the so-called freedom of navigation missions in the South China Sea, which are aimed at undermining China's claims.

"People say we have the best relationship of any president-president, because he's called president also". Trump, with his administration besieged by allegations of Russian Federation collusion, has an approval rating of just 36 percent - the worst for a United States president in modern history.

Patel faces calls to quit after meeting Israel PM on 'holiday'
Priti Patel met with Netanyahu, Yesh Atid leader Yair Lapid and other officials while on a family vacation in Israel in August. Ms Patel apologised for arranging and reporting the meetings "in a way which did not accord with the usual procedures".

"US officials should be well trained and prepared for travelling overseas and for maintaining secure communications, as the Chinese leadership are when they travel overseas". His previous stops were in Japan and South Korea, and in both countries he rallied the U.S. allies against the threat posed by North Korea, touting multibillion-dollar purchases of US-made military equipment as improving the national security of the buyers and helping fix their trade imbalances with America.

But some U.S. experts said it is unlikely Xi will make concessions on issues involving free speech even if Trump does raise them.

While Trump said he sees "certain movement" on the issue, he declined to comment on holding direct talks with North Korea and said the United States is ready - "if need be" - to use the full range of its military capabilities. China is North Korea's largest trading partner and Trump is expected to demand that the nation curtail its dealings with Pyongyang and expel North Korean workers from its borders. Beijing perceives the water mass, which is vital for its maritime trade and may become a major source of hydrocarbons in the future, as rightfully belonging to China.

Ming Wang, a professor of government and politics at George Mason University, said the Chinese "will give Trump an exceptional reception, essentially they'll try to make Trump happy - that will work to China's advantage".

Both issues are prioritized in China as well.
