President Trump will 'tweet whenever he wants' during China visit

Trump is expected to seek ways to reduce the huge USA trade deficit in his discussions with Chinese President Xi Jinping during his first, three-day state visit to Beijing.

Despite disagreements over trade and North Korea, the two leaders and their wives were all smiles as they ambled through the former imperial palace, first built in the 15th century.

Since Trump's election in 2016, critics among Chinese internet users have mockingly described American governance as "rule by Twitter".

Trump's lambasting of USA trade partners and his vows that under his administration the theft of American prosperity will end play well with the crowd - they carried him on a wave of popular sentiment into the White House after all - and no doubt they will serve to distract attention from his troubles at home, but they do nothing to help revitalise the United States economy, unless he can gain a few favours from other leaders, or boost the global economy. But it also underscored the geopolitical realities Trump has had to confront as President - and the relief here that he has yet to enact numerous toughest measures he pledged at almost every campaign trail rally.

During the two-night stay in Beijing, Trump will hold his third meeting with his Chinese counterpart, Xi Jinping, following the Mar-a-Lago visit by Xi in April and G20 talks in June.

"We can't continue to allow China to rape our country and that's what they're doing". He had called China a currency manipulator and accused Chinese of stealing American jobs.

The president said he was "having a great time" and at one point exclaimed "wow".

The Trump administration has been sending signals that it will maintain an Asian presence, for instance, boosting the so-called freedom of navigation missions in the South China Sea, which are aimed at undermining China's claims. Trump said last week that the $347 billion (€299 billion) trade deficit with China was "so bad that it's embarrassing".

In the 10 months of his presidency, the Trump administration has laid the foundation for him to take the kinds of strong retaliatory measures that would leave Chinese officials fuming.

But the presidency has a way of bringing uncomfortable realities crashing down on the most powerful person in the world, like the undeniably intertwined fates of the United States and Chinese economies.

"US officials should be well trained and prepared for travelling overseas and for maintaining secure communications, as the Chinese leadership are when they travel overseas". China is North Korea's largest trading partner and Trump is expected to demand that the nation curtail its dealings with Pyongyang and expel North Korean workers from its borders.

"China does not deliberately seek a trade surplus". "You cannot support, you cannot supply, you cannot accept". Russian Federation will "never recognise North Korea" as a nuclear state, which puts Moscow and Washington in "close" positions, Ulyanov said. The US says the area should belong to no one, remaining legally open for America's own military patrols.

US President Donald Trump arrived in Beijing Wednesday for the critical leg of his Asia tour to drum up an uncompromising global front against the nuclear weapons ambitions of the "cruel dictatorship" in North Korea.

Both issues are prioritized in China as well.
