BEIJING (AP) — President Donald Trump emerged from a lengthy meeting with Chinese President Xi Jinping on Thursday to declare that he believed he and Xi together can solve “probably all” the world’s problems.
“I look forward to many years of success and friendship working together to solve not only our problems, but world problems, and problems of great danger and security,” Trump said between meetings at the Great Hall of the People. “I believe we can solve almost all of them, and probably all of them.”
Trump and Xi were discussing a series of thorny issues during Trump’s second day in China, including China’s willingness to put the squeeze on North Korea over its nuclear weapons program, and the U.S.-China trade relationship.
Trump projected confidence on both fronts. He said both he and Xi believe “a solution” exists on North Korea. And he said the countries’ trade relationship — which he complained had gotten “so far out of kilter” — would be made “fair and it’ll be tremendous for both of us.”
