Trump Wants To Host China's Xi At Florida Resort

The meeting is tentatively scheduled for April 6-7 at Trump's Florida Mar-a-Lago resort, USA online media outlet Axios reported on Monday, citing officials familiar with the plans.

China's economy has shown signs of improvement in the first two months of the year with little risk of a hard landing, senior Chinese officials said.

No golf is planned during Xi's stay, Axios said.

Trump also hosted Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe at the luxurious Florida property last month. The two leaders will likely discuss a number of sensitive issues, including trade policies, Xi's military buildup in the South China Sea, and the ongoing disruptions in North Korea. He has accused China of manipulating its currency to allow its goods to outsell American made products.

Virginia knocks off Pitt in ACC tourney
They got great guards. "I tell the guys it's about the heart at this level, every possession matters, and that one mattered". Virginia was 11-of-21 (52.4 percent) from the field in the second half and shot 49.0 percent (24-of-49) for the game.

Trump highlighted North Korea in recent weeks as one of the US biggest security threats.

He has been less vocal about the trade imbalance between the USA and China since taking office, but it was a major theme of his campaign. China, on the other hand, is one of Pyongyang's biggest allies but has become increasingly anxious about its erratic neighbor.

Spicer's announcement came hours after reports emerged that Trump would also host the Chinese president at the exclusive resort during his visit next month.

The Palm Beach meeting would mark the first in-person meeting between the two presidents.
