  • Bloomberg reports, "President Donald Trump's top economic adviser touted progress in high-level talks with China, but cautioned that a final deal to end the trade war remains elusive as negotiations resumed in Washington. Negotiators are 'making good headway,' White House economic adviser Larry Kudlow told reporters Wednesday in Washington. 'But we're not there and we hope this week to get closer,' he said. U.S. stocks rebounded following his remarks. The comments came as negotiations shifted to the U.S. capital following a week of discussions in Beijing. U.S. Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer greeted Chinese Vice Premier Liu He as he entered the USTR offices in Washington on Wednesday morning for the latest round of talks. The main outstanding issues include protection for American intellectual property and an enforcement mechanism to ensure China honors its commitments in a trade agreement."
  • The New York Times reports, "A 32-year-old woman from China carrying four cellphones and a thumb drive infected with malware gained access to Mar-a-Lago during President Trump's visit to the Florida resort over the weekend, federal court records show. The woman, identified as Yujing Zhang, had arrived at the Palm Beach resort and showed two Chinese passports when she sought to be admitted, saying she wanted to use the pool. She was allowed to enter by Secret Service agents stationed outside the resort after the Mar-a-Lago security manager on duty verified that her last name matched the surname of a member of the club, according to a complaint filed in Federal District Court in South Florida. When asked if she was the member's daughter, 'she did not give a definitive answer,' the complaint said. It said she was permitted to enter and was escorted to the front desk in a valet-driven golf cart."

  • CNN reports, "US President Donald Trump said he called Chinese President Xi Jinping a 'king' during a state visit to Beijing in 2017 and that the Communist Party leader appeared to appreciate the remark. Speaking Tuesday at the National Republican Congressional Committee spring dinner in Washington, Trump said Xi had denied he was a king but the US leader insisted. 'He said, "But I am not king, I am president." I said "No, you're president for life, and therefore you're king",' Trump told his audience, prompting laughter. 'He said, huh. He liked that. I get along with him great.' Trump made his visit to China in November 2017, just months before the country's rubber-stamp legislature, the National People's Congress, removed the two-term limit on the Chinese presidency in March 2018. The move cleared the way for Xi to serve indefinitely as China's head of state, strengthening his grip on power."
