Trump in China – level 3

17-11-2017 15:00

President Trump became the first foreign leader to get the honour of dining in the Forbidden City in Beijing, receiving what Chinese President Xi Jinping described as a ‘state visit-plus’.

The American president and the First Lady appeared impressed by the cultural display, which included a lavish opera, held in their honour.

All of this was in sharp contrast from the current treatment of the American couple, to would-be Trump’s election campaign in which he accused China of committing ‘theft’ against the US. Trump is expected to press the issues of North Korea and trade in talks with President Jinping.

Difficult words: lavish (luxurious, rich, great), would-be (before something happens), accuse (say that somebody has done something wrong), issue (a problem).
