Trump's 'Winter White House' to Host Xi Jinping in April

The summit is tentatively scheduled for early April.

President Trump, who spent months on the campaign trail criticizing China's trade practices, is planning to host Chinese President Xi Jinping soon, a White House spokesman said Monday.

The official cautioned that the plan is only tentative at the moment.

Axios first reported on the Xi Jinping visit.

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.

The summit could mark a change of relations between the two presidents.

China's president may head to Palm Beach, FL, to meet with President Donald Trump next month.

He had promised to formally label China as a currency manipulator on his first day in office but has yet to do so.

North Korea is also a flashpoint in U.S.

Trump is particularly seeking Chinese cooperation on security matters regarding North Korea. China, on the other hand, is one of Pyongyang's biggest allies but has become increasingly anxious about its erratic neighbor.

Taiwan would also be high up on the agenda of a meeting between the two presidents. While he has changed his political positions on a range of issues, Trump has for years been consistent in how he views the US-Chinese relationship, blaming China as a major source of the decline of US manufacturing and exporting years before he chose to run for president.

The Mar-A-Lago meeting is likely to provide a relaxed locale for an important meeting between two world leaders.
