President Trump to Host Chinese President Xi Jinping at Mar-A-Lago

The two presidents are expected to meet for two days for a working session at Trump's "Winter White House" in Palm Beach, Fla., though the report has not yet been confirmed by the president's team. However, a senior administration official told CNN the plans are tentative.

Axios first reported on the Xi Jinping visit.

Moreover, Yang met separately with Trump and Secretary of State Rex Tillerson during his visit.

Trump also hosted Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe at the luxurious Florida property last month.

China's foreign ministry did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

Relations between China and the USA have been shaken since the election of Trump after he called the "One China" policy into question and took a call from Taiwanese President Tsai Ing-wen in December.

He had promised to formally label China as a currency manipulator on his first day in office but has yet to do so.

Trump's Mar-a-Lago estate is a possible site for the summit, which will be closely watched considering Trump's tough talk on China dating back to the campaign.

In the two leaders' last phone conversation in February, Trump assured Xi of his commitment to maintaining the "One China" policy.

Trump highlighted North Korea in recent weeks as one of the USA biggest security threats.

The then-U.S. president-elect also publicly toyed with the idea that Washington was not bound by the "One China" policy.
