Trump in China – level 2

17-11-2017 15:00

President Trump visited China and received a premium state visit. He became the first foreign leader to get the honour of dining in the Forbidden City in Beijing. There was a cultural show held for the President and the First Lady. They both seemed to be enjoying it.

The special treatment is in contrast to what Trump said in his presidential campaign. People think that Trump will talk with the Chinese President Xi Jinping about trade and North Korea.

Difficult words: premium (extra nice), honour (a show of respect), special treatment (when people are extra nice to you and they give you and show you something special).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.
