US sends message to N Korea, China with Syria strike

US sends message to N Korea, China with Syria strike

President Donald Trump expressed Friday how proud he was of his grandchildren for their performance in honor of Chinese President Xi Jinping and Madame Peng Liyuan's official visit to the U.S. The president retweeted his daughter Ivanka Trump's tweet in which she had posted a video capturing her children, Arabella and Joseph Kushner's performance for the Chinese president and his wife.

President Donald Trump pressed Chinese President Xi Jinping to do more to curb North Korea's nuclear program and help reduce the gaping US trade deficit with Beijing in talks on Friday, even as he toned down the strident anti-China rhetoric of his election campaign.

The White House downplayed expectations for a breakthrough on issues like trade and tariffs, insisting that the 24-hour summit is mostly an introductory meeting for the two leaders. "President Trump and President Xi agreed to work in concert to expand areas of cooperation while managing differences based on mutual respect", he said.

Stubborn Rabbit: The focus of the Xi-Trump meeting is on the war against North Korea that's about to start; Trump is going to ask China to deploy ground troops. He also noted the importance of protecting human rights, and asked China to adhere to worldwide norms in the seas of East Asia, Tillerson said.

The two countries' common interests are expanding rather than shrinking, it said. "Tremendous goodwill and friendship was formed, but only time will tell on trade". "My representatives have been meeting one-on-one with their counterparts.We'll be making a lot of additional progress", Trump said.

After their talks, Xi and Trump took a walk at the picturesque seaside resort, which Trump calls his "Southern White House".

To boost bilateral ties, Xi underlined the importance of further enhancing economic, military and law enforcement cooperation and people-to-people exchanges.

A senior intelligence official told the network that he doubted US and China could find a diplomatic solution to the crisis.

China is North Korea's economic lifeline and as such enjoys more leverage over its maverick neighbour than any other country.

'It seems that both countries have understood the importance of how essential a smooth transition needs to be, and not just for the two countries involved here, but really for the entire world over, ' it said. "I believe we will keep developing in a stable way to form friendly relations ..." "The objective is for us to increase our exports to them".

Trump nominee Neil Gorsuch confirmed to U.S. supreme court
The Senate on Friday confirmed , Neil Gorsuch, President Trump's nominee to serve as an associate justice on the Supreme Court. The vote was 54-45, as three Democrats voted for Gorsuch, Sen.

The two leaders established US China Comprehensive Dialogue, elevating their dialogue status. (US) has to turn the situation in the Middle East and Asia even more chaotic ... and has to cut (President Xi's) one-belt, one-road initiative alive! But the United States president later agreed to respect the "One China" policy in a telephone call with President Xi in February.

Those strikes added weight to Trump's threat last week to act unilaterally against North Korea's weapons program - although a much heavier risk would be required to take military action against the nuclear-armed North, which has its artillery and missiles trained on a key US ally, South Korea.

Ahead of the two presidents' second round of talks, senior Chinese and U.S. officials on Friday initiated the comprehensive economic dialogue, as well as the diplomatic and security dialogue, two of the four pillars of the newly established bilateral dialogue mechanism.

Within the framework, the two sides had frank and in-depth conversations and set the agenda for the next phase.
