Trump Touches Down In China, He Immediately Tweets…

President Donald Trump left from South Korea early on Wednesday to travel to China, a key stop on his Pacific tour.

He was greeted by President Xi Jinping, with whom Trump says he has an “outstanding” relationship.

The men were accompanied by their wives, First Lady Melania Trump and Madame Peng Liyuan.

The Trumps were hosted to a performance at the Peking Opera, per Daily Mail, where he was especially honored:

Xi had the production staged in the former imperial palace that is now a museum just for Trump’s visit.

‘Welcome to China! I love you!’ a group of children who were part of the performance told the U.S. president when it was finished.

In a pair of tweets, Trump said that he is enjoying his stay at the Forbidden City.

He tweeted, “On behalf of @FLOTUS Melania and I, THANK YOU for an unforgettable afternoon and evening at the Forbidden City in Beijing, President Xi and Madame Peng Liyuan. We are looking forward to rejoining you tomorrow morning!”

And, “Looking forward to a full day of meetings with President Xi and our delegations tomorrow. THANK YOU for the beautiful welcome China! @FLOTUS Melania and I will never forget it!”

Interestingly, Twitter is blocked in China, which led some to speculate whether Trump would be able to post while he was in the country.

Daily Mail also reports Air Force One enables the president to surpass the restriction:

The president will Tweet whatever he wants,’ a senior White House official told reporters aboard Air Force One shortly before Trump landed in Beijing.

Trump will likely be connected to US-based service provider, not a Chinese one, leaving him outside reach of the so-called Great Firewall.

‘I’m sure we’ve got the gear aboard this airplane to make it happen,’ said the White House official.

‘That’s his way of communicating directly with the American people. Why not?’

Moments after Trump initially landed in the country, American and Chinese businesses ceremonially signed a mega-deal, including the purchase of billions in U.S. products (via Daily Mail):

American and Chinese companies announced business deals worth $9 billion shortly after President Trump touched down in Beijing.

The 19 agreements were signed Wednesday at a ceremony attended by US Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross and Chinese vice premier Wang Yang.

They included a pledge by Chinese ecommerce company to buy more than $2billion of food products from the US over three years and a pact for Reignwood International to buy 50 more helicopters from US firm Bell Helicopter and sell them in China.

There will be more agreements Thursday bringing the total value to $20billion.

The ceremony was a prelude to a ‘more important’ signing ceremony set for Thursday, Wang said. Among the companies expected to sign deals are Qualcomm, Boeing and Goldman Sachs.

Personally, if all website owners and bloggers made good content material as you did, the net will likely be much more useful than ever before.
