Chinese President Xi Jinping and his US counterpart, Donald Trump finally met on April 6 and 7 in a highly-anticipated summit at Trump's Spanish-style Mar-a-Lago resort in Palm Beach, Florida to facilitate a constructive and productive relationship between the two countries.
The Chinese President Xi Jinping and United States President Donald Trump wrapped up a two-day presidential summit in Mar-a-Lago estate by announcing a 100-day plan to improve strained trade ties and boost cooperation between the two competing nations.
As Chinese President Xi Jinping wrapped up his state visit to Finland and meeting with his U.S. counterpart Donald Trump at Mar-a-Lago resort in the U.S. state of Florida from April 4 to 7, Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi briefed on the achievements of the visit and the meeting.

During his five-day visit to Australia from 22 to 26 March, 2017, at a press conference with Australian Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull, Chinese Premier Li Keqiang spelled out China's consistent position and policy on the South China Sea on March 24, 2017: "China has no intention to militarize the South China Sea. China's facilities on the islands and reefs are primarily for civilian purposes and, even if there is a certain amount of defence equipment or facilities, it is for maintaining the freedom of navigation."
U.S. President Donald Trump has been critical of China, especially its policy on North Korea, since he took over the White House. During US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson's Asia visit in March, he also criticized China in interviews when he was visiting Japan and South Korea. The tone became much friendlier when Tillerson arrived in Beijing, in particular after his meeting with Chinese President Xi Jinping on March 19.
The United States recently released data suggesting that the trade deficit with China accounted for 47 percent of its overall foreign trade deficit in 2016.
It is now a little over a month since President Trump took the oath for the US presidency and as the western and global media suggests it has been a month full of action and surprises.
It has been a few days more than a month since Mr. Donald Trump was inaugurated as the 45th President of the United States.
