Trump to play host to Xi in high-stakes summit


President Donald Trump plans to host Chinese President Xi Jinping for a two-day summit at his Florida club, Mar-a-Lago, according to Axios.

CNN also cited a senior White House official as confirming such plan, but the USA news organization also quoted the official as saying that "the plan is only tentative at the moment".

Press secretary Sean Spicer announced the Palm Beach trip to reporters during the White House press briefing, offering no other details regarding the objective of the trip.

No golf is planned during Xi's stay, Axios said.

Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe and his wife also traveled with the Trumps to Mar-a-Lago in February after first meeting at the White House.

The summit could mark a change of relations between the two presidents. He has accused China of manipulating its currency to allow its goods to outsell American made products.

The reported summit would follow a string of other recent U.S-China meetings and conversations aimed at mending ties after aggressive criticism of China by Trump during his election campaign.

Trump is particularly seeking Chinese cooperation on security matters regarding North Korea.

Taiwan would also be high up on the agenda of a meeting between the two presidents.

Trump recently said he plans to ask China to take more serious action to rein in North Korea, a nation Trump called one of his largest security challenges.

Under that policy, Washington acknowledges the Chinese position that there is only one China, of whichTaiwanis a part.
