( Daily Mail ) United States President Donald Trump and Chinese President Xi Jinping have arrived in Palm Beach for two days of talks.

The leaders arrived separately on Thursday and will not see each other until early this evening, when they’ll meet for the first time at a dinner that will also be attended by their wives.

Xi was greeted at the tarmac in Florida, where a red carpet was stretched out for his arrival, by Secretary of State Rex Tillerson.

Trump touched down just before 3pm.

Speaking to reporters who traveled with him on Air Force One from Washington, Trump was optimistic about the coming conversations. ‘I think China will be stepping up,’ he said of the pressure he expects the country to put on North Korea.

This marks their first ever meeting since Trump became president. While laborers and Democratic lawmakers are urging Trump to bring up touchy subjects like currency manipulation and trade, his aides are tempering expectations

 

 

 

Their summit brings together two leaders who could not seem more different: the often stormy Trump, prone to angry tweets, and Xi, outwardly calm, measured and tightly scripted

 

 

Both men wore dark suits, while the American first lady sported a red tea-length dress, paired with a floral print heel. Her Chinese counterpart wore a traditional qipao-inspired blue dress with black shoes

 

 

 

Trump said he wants to raise concerns about China's trade practices and urge Xi to do more to rein in North Korea's nuclear ambitions in the talks, though no major deals on either issue were expected

While China humiliated Obama at G20 summit from the minute they forced him to exit from ‘ass’ of Air Force One, Russia’s President Vladimir Putin in the meantime received a friendly red carpet treatment from Chinese leader Xi Jinping. In return, Putin brought a box of Russian ice-cream as a gift to Chinese leader, a big fan of Russian ice-cream.

“I promised you I’d bring some ice-cream,” Putin said. “I’ve brought for you a box of it as a gift.”

“Thank you very much for the gift, for the tasty ice-cream. In my every trip to Russia I always ask to buy Russian ice-cream. And then, at home, we eat it,” the Chinese leader said.

“You have the best cream, and it makes it so tasty. I like it very much. Thank you for this courtesy,” he added.
