China Grants Trump An Honor No Foreign Leader Has Had Since Its Founding”


“On their first visit to the communist regime, Trump and the First Lady were given a rare dinner inside the legendary Forbidden City, an honor not given to any foreign leader since the founding of the People’s Republic seven decades ago.

Trump and Melania arrived Wednesday afternoon in Beijing on their third leg of the President’s two-week tour. After landing, the couple toured the Forbidden City with Chinese President Xi Jinping and his wife, The Daily Caller reports.

The Forbidden City is a massive palace complex and was the residence of the imperial family for hundreds of years. At the site, Presidents Trump, Xi and their spouses enjoyed an opera performance and dinner together. This is very different from the greeting President Obama received on his farewell tour.

At his arrival last September, China delivered a calculated snub of the president, not even giving him a staircase to disembark from his plane. Mexico’s former ambassador to China said the treatment of Obama was a deliberate snub.”
