President Trump and First Lady Melania Trump Welcome President Xi Jinping and

President Donald Trump and First Lady Melania Trump welcomed Chinese President Xi Jinping and his wife to a summit at Mar-a-lago, President Trump’s private Florida beach resort and residence.

President Xi and his wife were greeted by President Trump and first lady Melania Trump at the Mar-a-Lago estate before making their way to dinner.

Ahead of the dinner, Trump said he and Xi already had had a long discussion and had “developed a friendship,” and then joked, “I have gotten nothing, absolutely nothing.”

The White House said the location was selected to give the two days of discussions a more relaxed feel. A number of Trump’s top advisers were in attendance, including his daughter, Ivanka Trump, and son-in-law, Jared Kushner.  (AP report)

    Ivanka has been Trump’s daughter for 35 years. She has been by his side through thick and thin, just like his sons. He has always had a strong bond with her. Ivanka and Jared are staying put.

    I’d much rather my tax dollars go towards events like this than feeding, housing, educating, and everything else under the sun for illegals!!!!!

    I fully expect tax dollars to pay for foreign dignitaries and leaders to meet with POTUS. It’s the illegal, uninvited foreigners I don’t want to pay for.

    It is ok that they are there. It is more eyes to protect the President. When you can’t even trust your own political party–you need your family. He needs sources of positive thinking to keep moving forward. If they make President Trump happy, be happy for him. Maybe along the way Jarod and Ivanka will learn to love the USA instead of globalism as much as he does and keep the flame going. I am just glad there are loyal eyes watching and over hearing the chatter. They can help sort out who is who.

  20. The only cost is food, servers and flowers. Same as Whitehouse since those are the facility table settings. How much money would you spend to save billions of dollars and American jobs through negotiation? Business does it every day. It’s called business entertainment.

    How’s the Chinese guy going to react to Trump attacking Syria? Might make him think about the NK’s a whole lot more seriously.

    Heads up Sundance, just tried to provide your website link to a moonbat over on scambook aka facebook and it was blocked from posting. Said your website was unsafe and didn’t meet their guidelines. You probably already knew this but heads up anyway. scambook hates the truth.

      I wonder if WordPress is colluding with Facebook, since this site was scrubbed from my WordPress Subscription site and I’ve gone through their search site and can’t find it. Finally I tried getting The Last Refuge, and it let me subscribe but there were no links to read from it. So finally I typed in The Conservative Treehouse and it took me here but won’t display the article choices like it used to. Is WordPress owned by a NeverTrumper or some such Demorat?

    Nice warm elegant and opulent Palm Beach is a much better place to welcome the Chinese president instead of cold rainy DC packed with whiny libs and protesters in weird hats.

    Why??? Why do this…….

    The U.S. military fired at least 50 Tomahawk missiles intended for a single target — Ash Sha’irat in Homs province in western Syria, the officials said.

      Because he is meeting with China and he has to prove he is tough for North Korea talks.

        Stupid Geo-Political move!


        • bertdilbert says:

          China has to believe “If you do not do it, we will.” Then while having dinner, Trump launches 50 missiles. This reminds China of Trump unpredictable nature. It also gives leverage to XI to save face with the Chinese people about acting with NK.

          What Trump does with China is far more important than whatever happens in Syria.

      Sorry – I just hit the first thread that loaded when I opened the WP app! I just got confirmation that this really did happen just a few minutes before I posted this.

      I had heard “rumors” 3-4 hours before this was confirmed.

      Notice how President Trump’s emotional meltdown, generated by a blanket media talking-point blitz concerning an unverified Sarin / Chlorine attack supposedly launched by the Assad regime, has generated the opening of a War with Syria, in less than 3 days.

      This DEEP STATE ploy will have been long prepared for Hillary’s inauguration, but had to be delayed pending installation of McMaster, the institutional capture of Pompeo / Tillerson and the demotion of Bannon from day-to-day NSC functions.

      We have now witnessed the Gulf-of-Tonkin moment of the 45th President.

    Very historic. The difference in natural authority of President Trump versus other presidents – to arrive at Mar-a-Largo or at any one of his other properties impresses in all the right ways (depth,ability, plus classic style) versus say Obama and his mortgaged property in Chicago and the Clintons always staying at someone else’s mansion, for example. No head of state really takes any other seriously if they haven’t proved their accomplishments – and not using government money either. One may be wary or afraid of them while they control the levers of power, but never really respect them.

      W-e-l-l. Obama has a $60M book deal about his stay in the White House. And remember he received the Nobel Peace Prize for doing absolutely nothing.


  29. Wasn’t it China that made Obama come in through the virtual backdoor? LOL Having to come in through the backdoor is a bad omen in Chinese culture. I went to a Chinese funeral for one of my co-worker’s mother. The funeral procession drove all over town to the interment to avoid coming in through the backdoor.


    • A2 says:

      According to the Chinese, it was the Obama team who screwed up because whomever does the disembarking for Zero refused to cooperate with the Chinese because they didn’t speak English. The Chinese said they would get a translator but the Obama people huffed it out the back hatch. I suspect retaliation for not allowing their over-quota of reporters they hauled around when the Chinese clearly indicated the number they would credential.


  30. I can only say that I’m shocked at the lack of strategic thinking ability shown by many of the people posting here today. Many of these same people who have worked themselves into a lather have commented in the past about how Pres Trump plays chess while others play checkers. So now … according to many of you .. Pres Trump has lost all ability to think several moves ahead. Believe it or not, folks, the small missile attack against a Syrian military base is the absolutely LEAST important thing about the whole incident. Pres Trump is engaged in setting the table for a total peace settlement through the entire Middle East, and this small show of force is an important part of what needs to take place first. So stop clutching your pearls, stop listening to the media fake news, stop your near-hysterical snowflake-like responses. Sit back, relax, kick off your shoes, and watch a masterpiece of diplomacy unfold before your eyes. Pres Trump may be new at this D.C.-congress-governing game but he knows exactly what he’s doing internationally. And keep reminding yourselves, we elected a PRESIDENT, and that means there’s a lot more on his plate than you would ever begin to dream of.

      I’m of a similar age as our President and I wouldn’t dream of taking on his workload ! Great precis on the situation, BTW !! I wonder if President Trump had a quiet moment with China’s Premier to inform of events in progress so the Premier can “save face” by being on the curve ..
