Chinese president to stay in Manalapan for Trump visit

Chinese President Xi Jenping and U.S. President Donald Trump will meet in Palm Beach next week.

Chinese President Xi Jinping will stay at the Eau Palm Beach Resort and Spa in Manalapan next week when he visits President Donald Trump, The Palm Beach Post’s Alexandra Seltzer reports.


Lantana Police Chief Sean Scheller made the announcement Monday at the Lantana Town Council meeting.


The Chinese president will visit April 6 and 7. Scheller said fencing will be going up around the area starting on Tuesday, April 4, and Lantana will lose about 80 percent of its municipal beach parking during the visit.


The Eau is about 7 miles south of Trump’s Mar-a-Lago Club. It’s not the first presidential visit for the hotel. Former President Barack Obama stayed there — when it was known as the Ritz-Carlton — in 2012.
