Trump-Xi summit in Palm Beach: The expectations game

Palm Beach summiteers Xi and Trump

PALM BEACH — President Donald Trump and Chinese President Xi Jinping are preparing for this week’s summit at Mar-a-Lago.


Trump, who last week said (perhaps jokingly) that striking a health care deal would be “such an easy one,” is saying his meeting with Xi will be “very difficult.”


State-run Chinese media says the Trump-Xi faceoff is “a good opportunity to deepen their personal understanding of each other.”
