President Trump is planning to host Chinese President Xi Jinping at Mar-a-Lago in April, an invitation that bears many implications for the meeting, per Axios.

Above all else, Trump’s willingness to welcome Xi to Mar-a-Lago will be reassuring to U.S. and world powers after he described China as a primary threat to the U.S. in many campaign speeches.

Check it out (via Axios):

  • Why it matters: For a White House that views China as threat #1, Trump’s willingness to meet with Xi — and give him the Mar-a-Lago treatment, no less — will be seen as a reassuring sign by establishment powers in the U.S. and around the world.
  • The optics: Trump is an exuberant host. While a White House session could look formal and cold, pictures out of Mar-a-Lago are likely to capture the rivals in relaxed, friendly settings.
  • What’s in it for China: Xi saw that by talking on the phone with Trump, he got the reassurance on the One China policy he was seeking. Xi is worried about Trump’s threats on trade, and he thinks that by engaging the transactional leader, he can head off punitive measures.
  • What’s in it for the U.S.: Lots. The U.S. wants Chinese cooperation on North Korea (the most important), the South China Sea, currency, trade, intellectual property and more. Administration officials are looking for multiple gives.

Another question to raise is whether or not Iowa Governor Terry Branstad will be in attendance as well.

Branstad was appointed by Trump to serve as the U.S. Ambassador to China after a decades-long friendship with Xi has made him a known political figure amongst the Chinese people.
