Xi, Trump to Chart Future Course

Xi, Trump to Chart Future CourseXi, Trump to Chart Future Course

Chinese President Xi Jinping probably won't play golf with his US counterpart Donald Trump during their first face-to-face meeting this week, but he may find it worthwhile to ensure his American counterpart does not feel like he's leaving empty-handed.

Some view the informal venue of the summit on Thursday and Friday—Trump's Mar-a-Lago estate in Florida—as a sign that neither side anticipates important outcomes.

Trump, however tweeted last week that he expects "a very difficult" meeting, and on Friday said: "We're going to get down to some very serious business," referencing what he believes is China's negative impact on the US economy, especially manufacturing jobs, AP reported.
