President Trump to Host Chinese President Xi Jinping at Mar-A-Lago

It has also been reported that the two-day meeting has been scheduled for April 6-7.

President Donald Trump is planning to host Chinese President Xi Jinping for a summit next month at his Mar-a-Lago estate in Florida, a senior administration official told CNN Monday.

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

President Trump has targeted China as a threat to the US and appeared to shun the longstanding "one China" policy during the transition by having a phone call with Taiwan.

Spicer's announcement came hours after reports emerged that Trump would also host the Chinese president at the exclusive resort during his visit next month. Economic and security issues between the two countries originally were brought up when Chinese State Councilor Yang Jiechi visited with Trump and Secretary of State Rex Tillerson last month.

During his presidential campaign, Trump repeatedly criticized China, arguing trade deals took jobs away from American workers.

Trump back-tracked during a February phone call with Xi, telling his Chinese counterpart he would recognize the "One China" policy. While he promised to formally label China as a currency manipulator on his first day in office, he has yet to do so.

It will be the first time the men will meet in person, and comes at a time of heightened tensions in east Asia.
