    Very impressive! The Chinese have arrived again on the world stage…like Beijing 2008, this is a wake up call…It is about power…we are blessed to have someone whose brand is power, luxury and success! President Xi understands that President Trump offers him legitimacy and if they make a deal, China may rule the 22nd Century without war…President Trump was very specific when he spoke with Prime Minister Abe…it is about the next 50 years…

      Never Forget China is a Communist country. They are not our friend. Go back and listen to Xi One Belt One Road speech two weeks ago. It’s all about domination of the west.

      It’s questionable whether China will be around, as is, in 50 years. Water shortages have a way of making life difficult. But the easy days of Chinese money are about to end. Demographics and India, as well as the rest of Asia, make cheap labor abundant, while it will grow much less abundant in China.

        Our Republic was on the brink of disaster…President Trump arrived in the nick of time! The Chinese have a longer time horizon as they have been an empire for more than 2000 years…we do not know the dynasties that have ruled and we can’t be foolish to trust them, but we can make deals…why not?

    Just saw PT’s remarks at the meeting. Fabulous remarks.

    It is self evident within President Trump’s psyche that the art of the deal is a Win/Win understanding. He has been through these ropes for years, negotiating properties, infrastructure and FFE for his hotels. The Chinese, not so enamored with negotiation. Always zero sum, win or die. I wonder if this is an iceberg or the Titanic in the ocean?

      Trumps comments were perfection. And Xi seemed to “get” what he was talking about….probably cuz it’s so freaking obvious.

      I’m sure the Chinese have been thinking for years “What the h*ll is WRONG with these American fools giving us everything we ask for And.More.”

        That could easily be, but having worked in that neck of the woods, your audience normally shakes their head in agreement with you while you are speaking no matter their real thoughts, and they giggle when you say forward agressive American-style comments, which means they are embarrassed.

        It’s always odd with the Japanese and the Chinese.

            I can try to make a long story short.

            I worked as an assistant designer on the Great Wall Hotel in Beijing years ago. 1982?
            First joint venture betwee the US and China since Nixin. Mau regressed the country so much that my comapnt, the architect actually built concrete facotries to build this 1000 room, seven restaurant hotel. Remember, the Chinese created concrete but after Mau lost sny contuation of it, thus the US assistance.

            Long and short, they stole plans for two subsiderary hotels. Stole the concrete from the factorythat was built for them, stole the management contract, ruined the curtain wall on the shearh of thebuilding and ruined the entire hotel one year later and begged Sheraton to come cak and managethe property. The million square foot facility was filfthy, and ravaged. Sheraton had to renovate many spaces to get it v
            Back up to expected standards.

              I worked as an assistant designer on the Great Wall Hotel Beijing years ago. 1982?
              First joint venture between the US and China since Nixon’s visit. Mau regressed the country so much that my company, the architect that was responsible for the project, actually built concrete factories to build this 1000 room, seven restaurant hotel. Remember, the Chinese created concrete… but after Mau, lost any continuation of it as a commercially specified material, thus the US assistance.

              Long and short, they stole plans for two subsidiary staging hotels and built them from the plans on two sites.

              They stole the concrete from the factory that was to supply for the Great Wall Hotel for the other two hotels, stole the management contract from Sheraton right before the opening, ruined the curtain wall on the exterior of the building, miss-calculated the column spread (at the foundation level, band-aided to this day), and ruined the entire interior of the hotel one year later.

              They begged Sheraton to come back and manage the property. The million square foot facility was filfthy, and ravaged. Sheraton had to renovate kitchens and many other spaces to return it to expected international 3 star standards.

              A mess. End of story.

    I’ve been thinking about a different dimension of this job for President Trump.

    His wealth before the election would have allowed everything to be done for him in his personal life as he did his job….chauffeurs, food preparation, laundry, travel arrangements, security etc .

    These thoughts took me to Chris Wallace asking him on Air Force One what went through his head when he heard he had been elected and Trump said it all seemed a bit surreal.

    Put him now in this setting as President and it has to still be surreal to him. Riding in The Beast with our flag on front, roads being cleared for him, getting to be in different countries and seeing pagentry orchestrated just for him and FLOTUS. Plus, knowing that he’s the one president that the Forbidden City is no longer forbidden for. It has to be amazing for him to behold.

    These videos are a gift for us but imagine what must be going through his mind as all of this unfolds in real life.

    He and Melania are a blessing to us and they too have been blessed in return.

        When I was there many, if not most, people rode bikes not cars. It was quite unappealing to see the chickens, which had just had their necks rung, slung over the baskets on their bikes as they rode to market!

          The Chinese do not think creatively since Mau shut everything down. They only copy most intellectual wealth, which has been massively stolen by the Chinese because that is the only way for them to compete. And their culture thrives on that mentality.

          It is just a fact.

        It’s not the band or the marching, it’s Chinese decision to publicly share the spectacle, with Trump, in time of apparent crisis in North Korea, against the backdrop of US media expectation that boorish Drumpf will droll over himself. The video speaks for itself with need for translation by the pundit class.

    At about 11:30, it appears that Trump strayed from “the script”. He appears to ask if they could step off the red carpet to show appreciation to the children. Camera pans away to the Communist symbol on a building for 10 seconds….finally, someone in the booth decided this is OK and went back to the two leaders with the children. Beautiful ceremony.

    The ceremonies were on par with the opening of the Olympics. They also had the feel of a highly scripted and well orchestrated event. Xi can now have his optics and I’m sure it was quite enjoyable for the President and First Lady. Certainly they received our President and First Lady with more honor and dignity than past presidents.

    Now, time to get down to business Xi.

    If this ceremony was broadcast live in China, then the little Soviet-style goose stepping military parade with rifles pointing forward was a show of power in the face of the all powerful USA. It was meant to be seen by all in China. POTUS mentioned it at the joint meeting and I bet he understood its meaning.

    Folks, the xenophobia here reeks of fear.

    Chinese have tens of millions of Christians. They have hundreds of millions of great people who love America. They send 100,000-200,000 children here per year for education.

    All I can say about the Chinese I know from Mainland is they are terrific human beings.
    And Chinese from Taiwan I know are very good people.
    I don’t have personal friends with Chinese from Hong Kong but I’m sure most of them are wonderful people.

    I’ve done business with people from all over China for ten years. They are very tough business people and the hurdles to work a deal are very difficult. However, business everywhere has obstacles, and doing due diligence is necessary wherever you want to establish trade or a commercial project.

    Think of Chinese in a more Christian way. Peace and prosperity begin with a sharp mind and an open heart.

    Has our President’s administration ever put on any celebratory greeting like this for a head of state visit? I don’t think there has been one. Kind of makes me feel bad, I think Bibi was even greeted at the back door practically or the lower level. And they all put on a show for our President. Is this typical for U.S. Presidents to get the glory and not reciprocated? I haven’t paid too much attention before. Sincere question.

      No, we really don’t go all out on celebrations for state visits.
      Never have.

      We have state dinners at the White House, sometimes throw a ball, even.
      We take heads of state to Camp David for a few days.
      Other than that…it’s pretty sparse.

      Potus has the benefit of having a place like Mar A Lago, where he can take heads of state for some ‘royal treatment’.
      Bush Sr. used Kennebunkport for that.
      Dubya used his ranch.

      We don’t do ‘military honor guard review’ type of things, though.
      It’s not because we aren’t capable of it…we just don’t do it.
      The closest thing we do is an Inaugural Parade.

      We could probably hold a parade for visiting dignitaries.
      But if we did it for one…we would have to do it for others, and where would we stop?
