By Micah HalpernI've Been Thinking:
Chinese President Xi Jinping will visit President Trump in Mar-a-Lago on April 6th and 7th.
This will be their first meeting between these presidents. It is important to note that while the visit will take place in the United States, not in China, it will be taking place in the president's Florida residence, not at the White House.
During the campaign Trump often made reference to the unfair money manipulation that China engaged in against the US. But campaign rhetoric and promises quickly fade away after the candidate assumes the presidency and faces the priorities of leadership.
No doubt they will discuss North Korea. They will only mention, if not skirt around, trade issues. The need to work with China to stop North Korea is essential for the US. The potential danger that North Korea poses is top priority.
China is right there, China is North Korea's neighbor and North Korea cares what China thinks. They fear China.
The US and China need to be on the same page now, as North Korea tries to flex its muscles.
