One of President Trump’s hallmark promises during his campaign was that if he won the election, a top priority would be to even the playing field between the United States and China and repair damaged relations. After 8 years of Obama’s reign and a long, pathetic list of bad deals, relations were strained to say the least.
The time has come. After his meeting with Chinese President Xi Jinping, it looks like Trump will be following through on yet another promise he made to the American people.
Daily Caller reports:
President Donald Trump told reporters Friday that he and Chinese President Xi Jinping have made “tremendous progress” in their discussions on the U.S.-China relationship.
“We had a long discussion already. So far, I have gotten nothing, absolutely nothing,” Trump joked at dinner Thursday, adding, “But we have developed a friendship. I can see that. I think, long-term, we are going to have a very, very great relationship and I look very much forward to it.”
The two presidents were able to discuss the U.S.-China relationship more deeply Friday.
“I think truly progress has been made. We’ll be making a lot of additional progress,” Trump told the press Friday. “I believe lots of very potentially bad problems will be going away,” he added, without going into specifics.
The two presidents are believed to have discussed key issues affecting the bilateral relationship, including trade and the North Korean threat to international stability.
Beijing hopes that this meeting will allow U.S.-China relations to move forward from a “new starting point.” Xi reportedly stressed the value of four new cooperation platforms focusing on diplomacy and security, the economy, law enforcement and cybersecurity, and people-to-people exchanges.
