I don’t care what you think about the man, this is going to be interesting to watch… what we will actually get to see of it anyway. President Trump is going to play host to Chinese President Xi Jinping at Mar-a-Lago next month. The President will be in a familiar and relaxed environment and his natural sense of showmanship will make him a most excellent host. I wonder which local Chinese restaurant will be delivering dinner. Maybe Chans will cater. I know that’s horrible but you know Trump has scarfed down some really bad Chinese food in his day.
They are going to have plenty of things to talk about but recent events in Korea are quite noteworthy. Mostly it is best to ignore North Korea but we haven’t been ignoring them. The United States is moving serious firepower into the area and while there is a big exercise underway the troops may not be going home as soon as the training is over. It may be that General Mattis is doing his part to insure that the time spent with the Chinese in Florida will be time well spent. Certainly this meeting is well timed. It will be a significant test of the President.
