Xi to meet Trump in Florida next week

Trump will host Chinese President Xi Jinping at his Florida estate next week, for meetings that are expected to focus intensely on trade between the leaders' two countries - and in particular, the United States trade deficit with China.

Zheng said the Chinese and USA presidents have reached important consensus through phone conversations and letters over the past months.

Hours after both countries confirmed the visit, Trump, in two tweets late Thursday, set out his priorities for the landmark summit.

He wrote in part: "We can no longer have massive trade deficits and job losses".

He said: "American companies must be prepared to look at other alternatives".

Trump has frequently accused China of keeping its yuan currency artificially low against the dollar to make Chinese exports cheaper, and "stealing" American manufacturing jobs.

Chinese Vice Foreign Minister Zheng Zeguang acknowledged there was a trade imbalance, but said this was mostly due to differences in their two economic structures and noted that China had a trade deficit in services.

Trump repeatedly attacked US trade relations with China on the campaign trail and has criticized China for failing to do more to deal with North Korea. What is clear is President Trump's affinity for McDonald's hamburgers, about which Vanity Fair states he has not been shy.

The remarks from Zheng came after Washington voiced its expectations for the talks between the leaders, including demanding that Beijing do more to rein in North Korea, and address the trade deficit. The policy in place since 1979 requires Washington to maintain only unofficial ties with Taiwan, which China claims as its own territory.

"Nothing we're saying tonight is about China", Navarro said at a Thursday evening briefing for White House reporters that began barely 15 minutes after Trump's tweets on China. The visit will include a dinner hosted by the president and first lady Melania Trump on April 6.

Mr Xi will meet Mr Trump at his Florida resort Mar-a-Largo after a short visit to Finland.

In the letter asking for the review, the lawmakers raised concerns about Trump's hosting of Japan Prime Minister Shinzō Abe, when they alleged, "the President his staff. discussed national security matters on "full view to diners" and reviewed potentially sensitive national security material in apparent violation of security protocols". Chinese communists since Mao have criticized golf as a sport for wealthy capitalists, and Xi has conducted a "war on golf" that has included the shutting down of more than 100 courses in China.

Spicer said the two sides reached agreement on the dates, locations and agendas of the Xi-Trump summit after several weeks of discussions.

"This is a very unsafe way to start the meeting", said Amy King, a senior lecturer at Australian National University and expert on Chinese foreign relations, as quoted by the Guardian.

"I know China says they're anxious about North Korea".

The White House has said that North Korea and the deployment of a THAAD missile defense battery in South Korea will be among the key topics for the upcoming summit.
